I live on a island in the Puget Sound with my husband and my dogs. I am a retired teacher, presently doing in -home care for disabled people while volunteering at a dog rescue

My degree is in art, and I am a painter, graphic artist, and ceramic sculptor. The writing started about five years ago, a surprise to me and everyone who knows me, since I had never written anything before.

The review for my first book in Kirkus Review: https://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-re...

Olivia is safe and will never be hungry again

I have loved a little black cat for quite a while. She lived in the woods behind a cabin owned by a solitary old woman that I visited regularly. The old woman, named Alice, had dementia and a very impaired memory, but she did remember to feed the cats that came to her front porch for sustenance. She no longer remembered which cats were hers and which were strays, but she remembered to feed them.

“Be not too hard
For life is short
and nothing
is given
to man.
Be not to hard
When he is sold and bought
And must manage as best he can.
Be not to hard
For soon he dies
Often no wiser than he began.
Be not too hard
For life
Is short
And nothing is given
to man.”
