I'm a retired English teacher who has recently moved from New Mexico--where I lived for almost 12 years--back to Tennessee. I'm working on a short novel which I'll publish through Create Space, when I get through editing it! I have loved words all my life and think it will be fun to be a part of a community of word lovers. I enjoy reading, writing, cooking, sewing, painting and--not to be left out--eating at restaurants with friends. I have written 80 Bible lessons which are published in 5 languages, so I hope it isn't too much to say that I'm a spiritual person. I enjoy my family, although most of them live at least an hour away. I would enjoy hearing from anyone on the site!
