I am the wearer of many hats – a jack of all trades with a love of the new and shiny, an eternal student who delights in each and every new nugget of wisdom and information. The one constant in my life has been, and always will be, a love of words.
I invite you to join me in the world of the imagination and creativity. Walk the valleys and mountain paths with me as I attempt to weave stories and poems to make you smile, laugh, cry and grow. For as someone recently said to me: stories are a journey into the soul of man.
