About me

Gender Female
Occupation writer/teacher
Location Southington, Ohio, United States
Introduction I was a teacher for 20 years, and still substitute when needed. My passions are writing, reading and gardening. I watch very little TV preferring books and music.
Interests reading, writing, music, gardening, hiking, camping, nature in general, travel, art, museums
Favorite Movies Comedies, or tender movies like ON GOLDEN POND, or movies like those found on PBS. Although I write and enjoy mysteries, I don't care for movies with excessive violence.
Favorite Music Classical and folk music like celtic, bluegrass, roots, old time string bands, blues, etc, or show tunes. My favorite instrument to listen to is the piano. My CD collection is large and varied.
Favorite Books Way too many to name. My house and library are filled with books I've loved or still need to read. I'm an eclectic reader, but love mysteries the most.

Which is more important to you and why: flexibility or expandability?

I have a collection of animals; two ponies,a few hens, a guinea fowl,a barn cat, a beautiful collie, Maggie, two house cats, two African ring neck doves and a canary, named Pavarotti.
