Writer and amateur photog. I seek to inspire and inform with the words I write and share and the photos I take. I have written a book of short stories: Terra Cotta Beauty, and I am working on a lot more. Reading and writing fuel my energy. In reading, I explore this vast and diverse world, in writing, I employ my over-active imagination and address the 'what-if' questions that life often throws at us.

I read all three at the same time over a three-month period – no particular reason, I just thought it would be a cool thing to do. I have the copies of the book prominently displayed in my home as a subtle reminder that you can do anything as long as you put your mind to it. I found out that today is the 65th year anniversary of the publication of this seminal book
