INFORMATION
I work in my county as a prevention educator for a substance abuse facility, previously taught as an elementary teacher in the public school system and worked a bit for the public library and for a very busy resort hotel in guest services. I love to read, write, spend time with family, especially my grandchildren and support my husband, Keven in his tri-athletic events. I have placed a number of times in the Ohio Poetry Day Contests with entries. I have a B.A. in Education from Mt. Vernon Nazarene University and I believe in miracles!

    CrystieCookie999: Congratulations on winning the Trimeric Treat contest! I will try sponsoring more contests later on if inspiration hits. Your author notes reminded me of how my grandma, toward the end of her life, gave away all of her recorded music and leaned on a single cassette or two of the sound of mountains and rainfalling and a stream to help her sleep through the night (she had fibromyalgia). We sure had some great entries!
