Besides writing, my other passions include photography, music, playing the piano, computers - all of which I am a master at none -
and my best friend, Q.
Family history, like pictures,
does no one any good when
never discussed ... it's like
like living in a camera or
viewed by accident when
clearing a memory stick.
Take time to share a good story,
write on a journal's blank page,
print a photo just because
remembering to label the back, write a letter for someone to
read ten years from now.
People in your life will be better and happier when you take a moment to share ... anything.
Poetry is a passion which began early when attending Harding Jr. High School in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. My English teacher (also named Pam) introduced me and the class to poet e.e. cummings.
I've been writing ever since. As an author of short stories and poetry, my work has been published by Dorrance & Company in their Contemporary Poets series (a book entitled "Sometimes It's Good to Believe in Monsters"), in "Lyrical Iowa" (an Anthology of the Iowa Poetry Association), "Virtue Magazine," and locally as a weekly columnist in The Oskaloosa Herald.
My poems are described as "short and
lyrical which follow in the tradition of
such well-known American poets as
Hugh Prather and Rod McKuen in their
exploration of love as the most basic of
human emotions and literary etudes
employing nature as an instrument for reasoning in an attempt to understand life, each other, and themselves."
