It is only recently that I have began to write short stories. I am 47. I find writing a very calming, soothing past-time. I may not have good language skills but hope to define those skills over time. My other interests are reading, cooking and walking. I have walked every single day since I was 24, other than the days that I was recovering from the birth of my 2 children. I walk first thing in the morning, listening to a variety of music genres. I use that hour to organize my mind, to plan my day and think of what I will make for dinner!
