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 on January 17, 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, nature and history, as well as the Esoteric sciences (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 would not consider myself religious, but I am spiritual, and I believe in Guardian Angels. I am not a scientist or a mathematician, 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. My parents - because I want to pay tribute to them. 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...where he met my Mum, an English girl living with her family in London at the time. They were both so different, it's strange that they got together. She was an educated, city girl...he was a country boy, not well-educated. They made their home in Canada, on a farm in rural Alberta. My dear Mum was not used to the snow and cold, and found out soon that she was severely allergic to the cows, but they both worked hard, until the farm burned to the ground...that was the point at which they took my sister and moved to the big city of Edmonton, where later I was born. Dad owned his own 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.
