I love connecting with women, men and children around the world. I am continually reminded of our similarities rather than our differences. My husband Phil and I divide our time between the shores of Lake Superior and San Francisco, CA. As we travel to points beyond and between, we remain grateful for those people we meet along the way. I’ve been writing for over thirty years. My poems have been published and used internationally since 2005. They were first published internationally by the Women’s United Nations Report Network. As a result of the WUNRN the poems reached numerous NGO’s (non-governmental organizations) around the world.
My poems have been translated from English into French, Spanish, Japanese, Mandarin and Urdu.
