(Editor note: I came to this brilliant lady a few years back-perfectionist oriented, lovely with expression, and an advocate of small press-I have been thankful since. We also have something else in common for different reasons: I was born in the USA but lived 10 years in the prairie life of Alberta during the Vietnam Era). I do disagree with Eve POD, with the new trend in publishing I think POD is great....if you are good (goood is good). If you have faith, good is good. Look to your legacy not tradional publishers, if they come along later that is fine. Oh course, I'm 65, so I'm pushing it!
Interview with The Lady:
Tell us about yourself — where you are from, education, family roots, some background.
When do you write? When do you not?
So, that means I tend to write early in the day, or in the wee hours if I’m in an insomniac cycle (or am lucky enough to be working night shifts). This also means there are two typical times when I’m inclined to write:
I’ve shared one in the link above, which is arguably my best. There are two or three others that I might be able narrow to one more favorite, and though they’ve all been accepted for publication during the past year, none have actually been published yet, so I can’t share them. Another poem that I think is strong, On the Riverboat Casting Shadows Overboard, was published in Cassandra Robison’s Magnolia: A Florida Journal of Literary and Fine Arts, and is the title poem for a collection I’m putting together, called Casting Shadows: Poems of Almost.
