INFORMATION
Begin Again is a resilient "senior citizen". Reinventing and restructuring her life has become almost common place for her.

I love music, books, and sitting by the water. Each of these activities brings a sense of life to me.

I've just recently began to dabble in writing again after a tsunami of life changing events in the past years. I hope to discover, once again, a new beginning in the world of imagination and the pleasure of writing.
FAVORITE QUOTE
The greatest gift of all is the love of family.

    Begin Again: Writing and having my FanStory friends enjoy my work is an extreme blessing for me. When life seems too dark and problematic, I know I will find brightness and laughter among all stories you share, but most of all, I know all of you care, and I am so grateful.

    Thank you for reading, enjoying, reviewing, and voting for REVENGE. In this busy time, I know what extra effort is made by all of you, and all I can say is, "You are the best. Thank you!"

    I send out CONGRATULATIONS to Sally (Running Blind), Barbara (Football), Yardier (#2 Pencil), and Helen for (Disguise and Surprises). Everyone did an excellent job! Kudos!!

    Smiles and hugs, Carol
