I’m just a girl who was transplanted to Beaumont, Texas in 2014 when my dear hubby got a job here. I was nervous about moving back to Texas but I had no cause to worry. I met and made wonderful writer friends through NaNoWriMo. (National Novel Writing Month) My writing is one of the most important things in my life. I have been published twice. Once on the NPR: This I Believe website and I have a poem that was published in the International Poets Society’s book in 2002.
In 2008, I became very ill and my body began to shut down. I was put into a medically induced coma for six weeks. In those six weeks, I was put on a ventilator because my lungs began to fail. I was put on dialysis as my kidneys began to fail. My husband was told to gather my family as I was not expected to make it. And yet, here I am today, stronger than I have ever been before.
My husband is why I am here today. He never gave up on me for one minute and I believe that his prayers were heard by God and here I am. Other than writing, I love to play video games with my husband and my best friend Ron. I love to create bracelets with the rainbow loom and when it gets cold, I start crocheting. I am currently working on a retro, pink camo poncho. Well, that’s a little peek into my life. I look forward to hearing about yours.
