I have always dreamed of being a writer. I have written a book of poetry and some fictional romance stories. I also wrote one that is partially sci-fi. I have another that is totally sci-fi started. I enjoy writing as a hobby and started writing after my father died. My first poem was about him and his death. I have written articles for my college yearbook and also an article for our magazine, Image. I also wrote a weekly news column for the Town of Stockbridge in the Oneida Daily Dispatch. I have also written a couple of songs and love the idea of possibly having them sung by country singers. In college I took many courses I felt would help me with my writing and I majored in journalism. I graduated from SUNY Morrisville in 1994. I live in a small country town and love it. Hobbies I enjoy other than writing are horseback riding, collecting teddy bears, dolls, angels, bells and Elvis memorabilia. I am sixty-four years old, disabled and married for forty-five years. I am a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. I like almost all music, except for opera, heavy metal, hard rock and rap.
