Bio: I am creating a new life in my forties after experiencing divorce. I have three adult children, amazing friends, a supportive family, and a job I love. I am an introvert who loves people but also needs time to myself to recharge. I love reading, movies, gardening, chocolate and wine.... not necessarily in that order! I have always been a secret writer, with journals hiding in my closet that not a soul has laid eyes on. This is a small start to putting my writing "out there". Music is like breathing to me, and I can't imagine my life without it. I am not a musician (although I did take plenty of lessons growing up), but I also have pages and pages of song lyrics stored away. I love to sing, and I listen to music as often as possible. My other love is nature and I am most at peace when I am near water. Although I have faced some pretty major challenges, I feel incredibly blessed and my life is good.
