INFORMATION
I was born in New York City and spent my childhood on Long Island, in a very traditional New York suburb. I rode my bike, played hopscotch and hide and seek 24/7 with my neighborhood friends. We were the baby boomers - the kids born a few months after out dads returned from World War II. We lived in the tract housing built specifically to be affordable to the returning vets.
Our family moved to Southern California when my dad was transferred with A&P as they attempted to expand this East Coast supermarket chain and make it truly an Atlantic and Pacific company.
I attended high school and college in the Pasadena area, - became a Legal Assistant and worked in that capacity for over thirty years. During that time I married and had four beautiful children.
Many adventures, ups and downs later, I was blessed with seven grandkids who the sun rises and sets on. I have written and published three books and I'm finishing the first draft of my next novel.
I was thrilled to find FanStory, since I have always loved writing poetry. My dad used to read poetry to us at the dinner table on Sunday evenings and was quite a wonderful poet himself. One of the poems he wrote to my mother during the war was pubished in the Stars and Stripes military newspaper.
I will write until I keel over - I swear I have ink in my blood.

    A. Louise Robertson: This is wonderful news. Thank you to the FanStory community for your support and votes. This poem is based in part on the loneliness the pandemic has inflicted on most of us as we are secluded. But also, as I get older, I do feel less and less visible not only to the world at large, but even to family members who, at times, seem to dismiss or disregard what I'm saying as if I'm too old to have anything worth listening to.

    A. Louise Robertson: This such an honor. Thank you for the votes FanStory members, I am always grateful for your support of my poetry and short stories. This particular poem was written in dedication to family members who have suffered and some who still do with mental illness. It is my hope that in my lifetime we can educate our society to appreciate the significance of helping those who are afflicted with this life-altering disease. We simply must stop making judgments when we don't understand the actions of the mentally ill. We must reach out and find them the help that is available, as we would if they were afflicted with any other disease (diabetes, epilepsy, etc.) Please help to get mental illness out of the closet and open for discussion so that understanding and care can be administered to those who are in so much pain.

I love FanStory because I always enjoy reading very generous reviews and honest criticism that my co-writers share with me after reading my work.
But, here I have to express my gratitude not only for the great and no so great reviews, but for the support of being voted on by my peers.
Thank you authors, poets, writers of all kind - oh, and I'd better not forget, "Thank you, Charlie."
