I am a wife, mother, grandmother and recently retired. From the time I learned to read I have always been an avid reader and had hopes of one day becoming a writer. Through the years I did write keeping journals, writing stories and trying my hand at poetry but I lacked the confidence to share my writings with others.

About five years ago I took the plunge and started posting stories on local web-sites, NewsFromTown, Baldwin Town Hall and the Elmira Telegram until that site was recently shut down. I quickly realized I was never going to write the "Great American Novel" but for me, writing about the day to day happenings in my family was reward and pleasure enough.

My goal is to share those stories about my family and hope any readers will receive as much pleasure from reading as I do from the writing
