Raised in Lubbock, Texas, I moved to south Texas in my early adulthood. I have been writing poetry for more than 45 years and for most of that time writing daily. Finding inspiration from nature, from my experiences as a nurse and from family life, my poetry helps me digest my experiences and elevate them.
