My Book - At the Starting Gate

My book, At the Starting Gate, is a collection of my works, from poetry to short stories. They range from light-hearted and funny to serious and inspirational. Some are true with a twist from my sometimes overactive creative inner artist. Others are a complete and utter fabrication of my hyper-vivid imagination. My book also includes some of my original poetry and short stories, the works are varied.

After years of postponing any hopes and dreams of becoming a writer, a gentle prodding nudge from my daughter rekindled the fire within – to write. The fact that the book is finished and published is evidence that it is never too late to realize your dream. At the Starting Gate quietly whispers – “there is no better time to start (name your dream) than now.

It is never too late to start, and now I am . . .
