About Me


I am lucky to have a large, loving and supportive family. I am grateful to the State of Maryland for helping me along and for my Autumn Lake at Crofton nursing home. I hope for a time when I can take care of myself and travel again. I have my eyes on the prize. I try to walk every day and keep my leg strong. We must be more than a string of experiences and deeds. If just one person reads something in the book and thinks, I have thought that before or that sounds like me, I will be satisfied.I am a 58-year-old teacher, writer and parent to Sam, 22, whom I raised on my own.
