Since childhood I have been expressing myself through the arts. Writing to me is an extension of my soul. Writing poetry is akin to dreaming out loud on paper. Music is my heart and soul and for many years, I sang and managed rock bands. At a young age, my very cultured British grandmother instilled the arts into my being. Today I write for several online writing sites and manage several blogs as well as dabbling in some amazing digital art, when I can find the time! I make my home just outside the lovely and green Portland, Oregon with my children and grandchildren.
