I have travelled from the rural community of Arctic Bay to the Appalachian hills of Kentucky, continually seeking new ideas from the people I meet. I am , primarily, a writer, but I have been a rancher, public health nurse, researcher and a university teacher. I enjoy talking to writers who look for inspiration and tips about writing.
