I am a writer. I am a private English teacher, tutor, translator and proofreader. Up until 12 months ago I had a day job to keep food in the fridge and to help my kids with their college tuition and driving lessons,etc. Oh, and the house mortgage…Once I passed the half century mark, I was put out to pasture, so to speak. But I am much like a Timex watch : I take a linking, but keep on ticking. It is enthralling to be free from the corporate cesspool.
Writing is not spitting against the wind. It is the beating heart and the breathing lungs and the ear that revels in music. I decided to create this blog and not hide the words I would like to share in a private “Dear Diary”. Also, the idea of being a productive community member of the written word fills me with awe and encouragement.
I write about personal freedom and change in my works of fiction. And of love and loss. My characters are people, who have reached the half-way point of their lives and wonder “Could I have done it better?” “Where have all the years gone?”
The adventures toward attaining their “impossible” dreams serve to encourage and validate later life choices.
The title of my blog, though quite self-explanatory, is actually my personal Declaration of Independence. I am a fan of Wonder Woman and murder mysteries. I am nuts about Bach, Vivaldi, Haydn, Scarlatti and Cowboy Junkies.
Originally from Michigan, the beautiful peninsula, I have lived in the tiny country of Luxembourg for half of my life
Thank you for visiting.
If you like photo albums, I invite you to peruse my photo-blog. Not much text, such the sights I have seen.
All the Best,
