About me

Location South Florida, United States
Introduction I didn't start out as a poet. I wanted to be a novelist. I also wanted to sail the Intracoastal Waterway through the Chesapeake Bay to the Vineyard one more time. On September 23, 1990, I woke up with a severe case of what was later to be diagnosed as ME/CFS (known by the demeaning name of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome).Finally, this year, 2011, the name was officially changed to M.E. Internationally. Hooray! As a former Clinical Psychologist, losing my old life was no fun! See the About Me page on my website to learn more about life before and during M.E.. Recently, exciting developments suggesting a retrovirus is involved in the etiology have been hitting the news.While the research wasn't replicated more than once, it meant that more researchers are delving into the problem.
You'll find my poems in Chiron Review, The Dead Mule, Main Street Rag, PoetsArtist,Orange and Sardines, The Cliffs: Soundings, Wild Goose Review, In The Fray, Empowerment4Women, Remark Journal, Haiga Online, Moonset, Simply Haiku, to name a few.
Interests Writing poetry, fiction, reading, friends..used to sail, bike and play piano..can no longer do that.

She can't sing worth a damn, but her lyrics make this album worth busying. Send cash.
