I'm married to a loving, hard-working man who is my soul-mate and the most important person in my life. We have 4 cats and a Shihtzu-Sheltie cross named Lyric. I lost my 18 year old cat Beth, on Dec. 30, 2014...and as of this update 2015, we have a kitten, which I have named Mandy. I love animals, and have spent my life as a rescuer...I can't stand the thought of any creature having to suffer. Music and singing consume me, body and soul. Other activities I enjoy are writing, reading, gardening, movies, trivia, cooking, eating, collecting, biographies, art appreciation, artistic and creative projects, nature and history, and all things Esoteric (Numerology, etc...) I love it when something or someone makes me laugh. I think Music, Humor and Compassion are essential to leading a happy and productive life. I do not have a scientific or mathematical mind, but I am a thinker and I look at most things analytically.

I am a writer of children's stories, books for youths and poetry. My first children's book has been published as of Nov.6/14...KESSA AND THE SPIDER (readers aged 4 to 8)...dedicated to my great-niece Henna...and is available at this link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00PB0AOJ6.
My editorial skills were used in 2013, when assisting my good friend with her children's book, which was published and printed.

My immediate family is made up of my husband, my sister, my 2 nieces and my 2 great-nieces - Ernest, Ann, Rachel, Kathleen, Henna and Morgan, in that order. I want to pay tribute to my parents because they were responsible for introducing me to Music, Books, and Gardens, and for that I am eternally grateful. Dad was a Sergeant in the Royal Canadian Air Force during WW2 and while overseas, met and fell in love with my Mum, an educated English girl living with her family in London at the time. He brought her home to his family farm in rural Alberta, Canada, where she had to adjust and adapt to the snow and cold, as well as a severe allergy to the cows. They both worked hard until the farm burned to the ground...then they took my sister and moved to the big city of Edmonton, where later I was born. Dad owned a trucking company and drove a taxi, and Mum worked as a secretary, till retiring. Unfortunately, my Dad died when I was 12, but I was lucky enough to have my Mum till just before her 90th birthday. I have recently been doing a lot of genealogical work on my family. The background photo on my page is of 'HOME COTTAGE' in Hockham, England, which was built by my great-uncle Christopher (Christmas) Bush, a writer (also wrote under the pseudonym of Michael Home) famous for his detective novels. He rebuilt that house for my Great-Grandmother Eva after her 9 children were born there, and my mother was born there as well. http://www.literarynorfolk.co.uk/great_hockham.htm
