Can you tell us something that even your most loyal fans may not know about you?
I’m a social worker, but my first goal was to become a teacher. Then while in Junior High my classmates were so hard on the teacher that I decided, no, I’m not going to do this. I wanted to help people and that led to my becoming a social worker. For years I wrote poems and shared them at events. It wasn’t until I was encouraged to put them together in a collection that I decided to try it and then to self publish. Hence, the title “Finally” because it finally happened.
