I've loved poetry my entire life beginning with poems my parents read to my brother and me from the Jr. Classics.

My husband and I travel all over this beautiful country and I enjoy writing poems about my travels. We have twenty acres in Montana with such beautiful sunrises and sunsets. I enjoy taking pictures with my digital camera.

I have written hundreds of poems for John McCornack's web pages. John sends me a page with the wonderful pictures he takes and I write a poem that will snuggle into the page. What a challenge that is for me!

My poems have been published in True Love and True Romance magazines as well as several anthologies. Recently my poem Arches National Park (posted here on Poem Hunter) was published in a text book for children ages 15-16. The company is Pearson Learning and based in Singapore.

I love to write about the simple life and how faith and hope is always there and that tomorrow is a fresh new beginning.
