Well, here I am a single grandmother raising my 4 year old grandson after we lost his mom (my daughter) a few years back. I have 2 other grandbabies and one on the way from my eldest daughter and son-in-law. I’ve also had the pleasure of raising my 7 step children whom I consider to be my own after caring for them for 13 years. My eldest step son has blessed me with yet another grandchild for a grand total of 5 and counting.
In 2008 I was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis, an auto immune arthritic disease that affects the spine and hips. Due to this I’m unable to work a conventional job since I need to closely monitor my energy levels and be able to rest when needed. If I don’t do these things I will inevitably have a flare up, which is not a good thing. Another health issue that I’ve had to deal with is alcoholism and drug addiction. I’ve been in recovery for 21 years now and while I feel good about my sobriety I never forget where I came from, and that everyday I have is a day I would not have if I were still using.
In addition to writing on Smashwords, I maintain a blog, a store on Etsy.com (GrandmaTerri), a few Facebook pages, and I do freelance writing. With my grandson in tow my life is as busy as it gets. I hope you enjoy my books and find time in your busy schedule to check out some of my other projects. Thanks for reading :-)

This is a small collection of poems that examine the darker sides of mankind. Our life in this world of light can only be truly appreciated when one has walked in the dark.
