I was born in L.A., brought to West Philly, Pa., at the age of 4 by my single mom to live with my grandfather as he was a widower. I graduated high school, worked as a dictaphone operator, became secretary to the treasurer of an insurance company. Married for fifty years to my late husband. There are five children, eleven grandchildren and five great grandchildren. I started college at age forty-four and graduated at age forty-seven with a nursing degree... by the time I retired it was a a coronary critical care registered nurse.
I started writing poetry in 2003 and am still writing pooetry... a lot of it at AllPoetry.Com and I will be transferring many more poems here from there and adding new ones to Poemhunter.com
