A little about me - I've won awards for poetry and for one of my short stories and I've been published in small editions.
I've studied English Composition, Literature, Creative Writing and Poetry but the bulk & most important part of my continuing education, is reading, I read a lot.
I try to vary my reading and read not only a vast assortment of books, but of writers, too. I'm not a book snob - but I read classics, as well. These days I'm reading much more fiction than non-fiction, I seem to find more truth there.
I'm proudest of my fiction and oddly enough, lately - some of my better Limericks, which seem to be attracting attention.
My greatest joy, other than my family & friends, the natural world, and spiritual beliefs (not necessarily in that order), is entertaining people and making them laugh.
I try to vary my work - I don't write in any one genre - or about any one time period.
With over 15 short stories, a complete mystery novella, 2 serials, 24 poetry groups (including said Limericks), and 4 or 5 non-fiction essays - I do hope you can find something to your liking : )
In the name of blessed brevity, ease to the reader, & to compete with the poetry (including my own), almost all my work is posted in parts of a page or less, most less than a half page.
Joy...hugs, and hang in there, gang.

One of the ways I promoted Wattpad - was that unlike Facebook and other sites, WP offered a copyright option & that our work was protected.
I no longer see that option so let me just say:
