Family is my life. Writing is my passion. Most of my writing has been instructional and I still write instructional material and host www.rainbowriter.com (a support community for writers, editors and publishers. Please feel free to join or contact me through the site for discussions not related to or appropriate for Authonomy.com.)
In semi-retirement I've found time to venture into the worlds of fiction, creative non-fiction and writing for children.
In the autumn of my life, I have become courageous and outspoken. I embrace controversy. I admire the courage and personal strength of those who stand fearlessly for their beliefs and for good and right.
I welcome a challenge and I refuse to withdraw from truth, no matter how ugly or unpopular.
I am enraged at the callous injustice, hypocrisy and unconscionable dishonesty of bureaucrats, politicians and racist activists who perpetrate social injustice and fuel the fires of anger and resentment.
My heroes are the unsung battlers: those who suffer quietly and with serene acceptance of that which is unacceptable - man's inhumanity to man - yet continue to love, to give, and to hope.
I find myself yielding to a furious yearning to use my pen to ''nudge the world a little'' - to expose and hopefully inspire remedy of social injustice; to applaud unsung heroes; to openly condemn greed, malice, cruelty and evil.
I have removed ''The Pencil Case'' from Authonomy after publishing on Smashwords and through Lightning Source. Ask for a coupon to download free if you are willing to publish a Smashwords review for me.
I will post other writings soon. Meanwhile, I wish all my good friends on Authonomy every success and happiness, and thank yu for your friendship.
