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: 
All work on my site, unless otherwise noted or quoted, is original, written by me and is hereby copyrighted.

A little sci-fi, not in the usual format. Using intelligence, planning & understanding of what can bring good outcomes & thus perhaps avoid scenes & stories of dystopic worlds and mutants. Who knows, it may turn out all right : )

Excepting five or six, all of these haiku are about lips and kissing. Some Haiku for you, lips & a few, sweet, wine-touched kisses, too.
