About the Book
I love rhyme! I love life! Put them together and you have "thoughts well-turned." This book is a selection of my finest poetry (mostly rhyme), with a number of quality images from my art portfolio. Some insights into the origin of my love of words and the beauty of poetry in rhyme add a personal note to the poetry selections.
NOTE: The beginning and ending pages of the preview show the dust jacket and are available with purchase of the hardcover edition. I've allowed the entire book to be previewed to make the content easy to find. I do welcome purchases, however. If you like my book, please consider gifting it to a friend or to yourself. Websearch my name for links to all of my writing and art. I welcome your comments in my guest book at http://www.fineartstudio111.com Thank you for reading!
Born in Southern California, studied three years at the Sorbonne in France, lived twenty years in Mexico, where I raised my three sons and worked at a variety positions, as French and English professor, graphic illustrator, copywriter, translator/interpreter, and aquatic resource assistant, while pursuing my fine art on the side. My greatest loves are the Faith, my family and the arts. Returned to Northern California in 1983 to continue raising my family while working as a language teacher/interpreter/translator. Now living in San Diego, California - full circle to my birthplace and ready to write the next chapter. My love of challenge continues to inspire my writing, art and life itself, as past hardships overcome have made me stronger and more eager to face new challenges. Life's motto: "Happiness is not getting what you want, but wanting what you get."
