Story
Tagline
After over 30 years in several facets in Telemarketing I am retired , yet still writing.
Introduction
I was born in Brooklyn , New York. Moved to Middletown Pa.. Spent 10 years there and moved  to Texas in 1980. Since before leaving Pennsylvania I've raised my 2 Daughters by myself. The first 5 years in Texas I worked full time and after my daytime job , I worked a part-time job in the evenings until 9 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.  After that , I worked full time only . While still in Pa. , I started writing poetry. So far , I've had 2 poems published. 
Bragging rights
I am proud of the fact that I have a book of Poetry in the working for publishing and will get it done. Also , I am honored to say that two of my poems are already published.
