INFORMATION
The first poem I ever wrote was when I began to write here on FanStory. That was a bit over 3 years ago. It opened up a whole new world for me and I was and have been hooked on writing since that day. I learned what writing in meter was, the different poetic forms, and so much more from the classes I have taken here on this site. This group of writers and poets have become friends and mentors to me and they all hold a special place in my heart. Just a bit of bio. I am a homemaker to a wonderful man who is a professor of Logistics, PhD, mother to two adult sons and one DIL, , daughter to a retired minister, and it seems... a professional volunteer in my community. LOL. I love people and poetry.
