Hello! I am a self published author from Iowa. I am a wife and a mother of two, Roland and Arthur. I have three poetry books published so far with four and five in the works. Here you’ll find updates, links to my work, and my blogs. My hope is that somewhere in my work you find a piece of yourself, that you can sit and get lost in some words, and that those words may inspire your own.

Everyone has a story to tell… here are some of mine…

Grab my poetry here (don’t forget your favorite mug and drink) ENJOY!

For women, we are predatory if you ask too much or take up too much space or choose dress in a certain way.   In direct sales you are a predator for simply being too bothersome

The Garden Witch

I never did get those pills to make me normal, to make me not a weed.  I was told though that I would outgrow it. I never did.  I kept on being a worry weed but I also kept on pretending. Magical adventures as a good witch with enchanted gardens.  How could one worry so much with a garden?
