About the Book
I am a long-time writer and poet beginning as early as the third grade. My first "published" poem appeared in the school newspaper and was entitled Worry Wort! I created a blog in 2008 called Poetically Speaking which I still maintain. This became the vehicle for sharing my poetry. However, when I was introduced to the Blurb.com software, making books became a passion with me. I first book I wrote was for my daughter and her husband which covered the first two years in the lives of their twins called, A Grandma's Memories (they are teenagers now.) Soon to follow was a book of my late sister's poetry called, A Lifetime of Poetry published in May of 2010 followed by a book of my own poems called, What's in a Rhyme? This was followed by Words of Witness and An Age-Old Story. My latest is the Disappearance of Marion Roberts, a biography of my Mother's battle with Bipolar illness in the last 20 years of her life. My hope is that there are many more books to come.
