I live in Kentucky, the bluegrass state. I am a licensed cosmetologist in both Kentucky and Indiana but now retired. I owned my own salon and also, in years past, worked for Clinique at Macy's. I, spend most days either writing or painting. I am married to Carl Duncan and have two children, Michele and Jamie. I have a grand daughter Cassidy. I enjoy Zumba, gardening, riding bicycles, walking, painting and of course writing. I plan on adding more books to Smashwords. I am very diverse in what I write. I write poetry, children's books, Christian monologues in rhyme, and songs. I have had poems published and also had my dramatic monologues performed. I am very passionate about writing and hope you enjoy reading what I write. God bless!

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Philpot, Kentucky and almost all I write is influenced from the farm I lived on. The different seasons in Kentucky inspired me to write a lot of poetry which is published in the book "Poetry Of Nature." Another book of short stories I wrote "Annie's Antics" was also written based on the farm I lived on with my parents. All of the short stories are based on a true event with added fiction to make it more interesting. Though being raised on a farm as an only child, I did a lot of adventurous things to have fun. I have written a lot more about where I was raised just not published.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing at the age of 10 years old. I remember sitting at the kitchen table in our farmhouse writing an adventure about a young boy and his father in a plane crash and having to survive in the mountains alone. I did not have anything published until about 7 years ago. I actually kept all my writing to myself. It was/is a wonderful distraction from thinking about every day pressures.
