Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was my first introduction to poetry. I have been writing poetry ever since. I am a poet who, in the past four years, has begun to write short stories that include fictional tales about cats and dogs. Mrs. Bentley's Cat is my latest completed work.
I am a native Washingtonian, living in Killeen, Texas. Although I did not complete college, I attended Montgomery college in Takoma, Maryland and the USDA Graduate School in Washington, D.C. I am the mother of three and grandmother of four.
Former President William Clinton sent me a thank you letter and A Day of Mourning Proclamation for my poem, A Few Days On This Earth. This poem is given to parents of stillborn children throughout the country by bereavement organizations.

Diamond is a gifted artist who enjoys illustrating, dancing and music. She has illustrated three books at this time.
