About Me

Hi! I'm a little ole Alabama "granny", retired from the work force, spending a lot of my time doing what I like to do most, which is writing poetry.


I'm very grateful to the small press poetry publications that have been so kind to publish my work. My poems have been published more than 600 times, and I have been very fortunate to have received numerous awards, including First, Second, and Third Place, and Honorable Mentions. I was deeply moved and honored when the readers of Poet's Review voted me 1999 POET OF THE YEAR.


My work has appeared in Mobius, Lucidity, Apropos, Poets At Work, Oatmeal and Poetry, Manna, Tucumcari Literary Review, Roswell Literary Review, The Candlelight Poetry Journal, Potpourri, Poet's Review, Poetic Page, Feelings, The Inspirational Poet, RB's Poets' Viewpoint, Bell's Letters, Omnific, and others.


When I'm not writing, you can find me on my computer (trying to build my web pages!), reading a book, watching old movies on television, and sometimes babysitting my grandchildren. I love music, flowers, the singing of birds, chocolate, and Christmas.


Thank you so much for visiting my web site.
I would be very happy if you signed my guest book before you go,
and if you have a web site, please leave your URL, so I can come visit you.
