About Me
What I like about writing is that I can capture a feeling or a picture that stays with me. One description of my grandmother is a visual reminder of who she was and what she was all about -- at least to my "small" eyes, as I was only eight when she died. I have many family members I would like to capture in the same way.

I write both poetry and short stories, but have never published. For the most part, I like to write from a southern viewpoint which is my heritage, but have also written from a northerner or New England viewpoint (to the best of my ability). I like colloquialisms because of their ability to fully describe a situation from a particular culture.

I am a native New Mexican, but have lived in many states which has given me better knowledge of what it is to be a "southerner," for instance, or a "northener." I like and fit in well with people from different cultures.

Favorite Quote:

"God’s grace is like a gentle morning dew and a soft rain that gives new life to barren soil. My call is indeed to become more and more sensitive to the morning dew and to open my soul to the rain, so that my innermost self can bring forth the savior. Henri Nouwen,The Genesee Diary"
