I have been writing - to one degree or another - for most of my life; at least as long as I was able to hold a crayon. My mother had to read some of these to me because I was too young to actually read.
This interest increased throughout my school years, especially in high school where I served as editor of our annual creative writing club newsletter. By the time I was in college, however, I just didn't have the time (read: make the time) so my writing kind of fell by the wayside.
Later, I began to write plays; many of which were performed in churches throughout the United States, the UK, and South Africa. It was through this that I met many others involved in similar ventures throughout the United States and Canada.
As I reached retirement in July of 2010 I began to write in earnest. I have written for HubPages.com, for BookRix.com, and occasionaly for my blog.
Now I am about ready to see some of my work REALLY be published. My second-cousin has just had a book published through a similar company; as well as a print book.
I hope to be able, then, to see my own work "in print".
You can read more about who I am and some of my thoughts at any of my other profiles on this page.

This heartwarming holiday tale is just the right length for a young child's bedtime story.
