Dear Nana Book

My memoir of my grandmother was just published in the “Dear Nana” book. There are 39 other authors besides DSC_1084-001myself included in this “must read” book.

Many of us have passed down experiences that we have learned from these special ladies. The book is for sale at

Selling Copies of My Chapbook “Theater of Life”

For those of you who might be interested in purchasing my poetry book “Theater of Life” which was published by Finishing Line Press I have reduced the price to $7.00 plus $1.00 for postage.

Here is a sample of one of the poems:

Ray of Hope

You feel the night’s loneliness

as you watch the pumpkin-colored sun

come to rest.

Seagulls cry loudly

as they circle overhead,

drops of salty water touch your lips,

sea spray cleanses your soul

when waves move in from the ocean.

You walk along the aged shore

where others have traveled

reaching out for a fragile thread.
