I am a fifty two year old woman living with the illness schizophrenia. I started writing about two years ago. I have been an artist for many years. I was born in Washington D.C. and have lived in Brazil, Zaire, and Germany. I have traveled to many places in my life as my father was in the Foreign Service. I live alone in my own condominium, am unemployed, enjoy long walks in the woods, painting, digital art, photography, painting, collage, decoupage, bead stringing, decorative art, and writing poetry.
I have published another book entitled “Take Five Seroquel and Call Me in the Morning, two poems in the magazine “Transcendent Visions” (“Rain” and “Confined”), and won first place in an online poetry contest “writearoundtheblock” entitled “Summer” which was published in my first book.
