Sylvia Plath and Her Bees
   I've been catching up on reading poetry for the last few months. Birthday, Christmas, and a few personal splurges brought good books to my shelves.  Shopping at my favorite used-book store in the Palm Beach County area,  Book Exchange , landed me a copy ...

Cowboy Poetry
     "Here," my writing-group compadre , Don, said as he pushed across the table a small book of cowboy poetry. "I thought you might really enjoy this."      Settled in for the evening that night, I read the front and back blurbs. I read the Introduction, t...

Story
Tagline
Fiction Writer and Poet
Introduction
     My profile picture is of a white egret resting on a pine limb in my garden. He (She) and his (her) siblings are a beautiful species of bird that gives us the present of their presence year round in Florida.
     I write poetry, fiction, and essays. An animal lover, I own two rescued dogs (Jojo, a Mini-Schnauzer, and Cody, a Silky Terrier), five parakeets, and a garden of varied fur, feather, and translucent-winged creatures. 
     I am also an avid reader, not only of literary works but also of nature's wonders. A tropical garden dwells in my backyard––akin to a botanical masterpiece––which I call Eden. This is the source of my nature "reads," and on my best reading days, the pages fly.
     I am a member of the "Florida Writers Association" (www.FloridaWriters.net), the Florida State Poets Association (www.floridastatepoetsassociation.org), and the Writing Group of Royal Palm Beach, Florida.
