I have been writing for over 30 years. I began with poetry, then non-fiction but realized that I love fiction. I enjoy novellas the most and after that, short stories. I write because it is a part of me and it helps keep me sane in this crazy world. All of my fiction work is partially based on single moments in my life. My first collection of short stories, What Is This World Coming To? was inspired by my children. I've had the stories for decades, but finally decided to publish in 2010 (this is why I say procrastination is a bad thing). My second collection came from listening to men and women in relationships talk about their problems. This is called “…And I Trusted You?”
