All About Me…sorta

fathers-day-002     I am a Christian, a Wife, a Mother, a retired Teacher, a Writer and hearing impaired.  I have two stepdaughters who are crunching on both sides of 40 and have been a part of my life since they were 5 and 7.  My husband and I, daunted by the Baby Jessica and Baby Richard adoption heartbreaks, chose to adopt internationally.  My children are from Korea and Russia…and proud of it!

Writing is what I do to feel content.  I love television, movies and theater.  I prefer the quirky kind of pieces with rich characterizations.  I am…was…addicted to ‘ER’….or maybe just the work of Maura Tierney?   I read every one of the Harry Potter books hot off the press.  I came late to The Hunger Games because I was forcing my daughter to read them….to read SOMETHING…and we were both addicted.  I love the ‘Anne of Green Gables’ series, anything by Louisa May Alcott, James Michener , Karen Rose,  Susan Elizabet Phillips or Pearl Buck .  I read any available newspaper from cover to cover.  National Geographic, Guideposts, Entertainment Weekly  and People Magazine are my magazines of choice.   I also read Vanity Fair, Good Housekeeping, Time and Newsweek if the covers catch my eye.  Otherwise I tend to enjoy biographies, biographical fiction,  historical fictions, contemporary romances, new kids’ fiction and scary police stuff.  Slogging my way through Pulitzer Prize winners makes me feel proud…..but not necessarily ‘enlightened.’    I always have a story or a novel ‘in progress’ on my lap top.   I paint, take semi-awesome pictures, sew, knit, quilt, bake and cook.  I abhorr cleaning house and avoid it at all costs.  I love my family……
