Just before we left on a holiday to Newfoundland, a routine mammogram led to more tests and a large question mark. Did I or didn’t I have breast cancer?
I'm a writer, speaker, reader, teacher, pioneer, and visonary.
I have a lot of interests and my blogs are kind of random.
I write, edit, and publish books and stories in a variety of genres.

"No person* is an island entire of itself: every person is a piece of the continent, a part of the main... Any person's death diminishes me, because I am involved in humankind. And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for you.*" (*"man" ^"thee")
