I have been married since the dawn of time (about 25 years) and raised two great kids, now 18 and 20. Like all families, we have our issues, but we survive everything that comes our way, so I guess we do ok. No grandkids yet, and hopefully no time soon. In about 7 or 8 years, maybe. No rush.
My education? Hm. Well, I went to college over a decade, here and there. I moved a lot, and wherever I went, I attended school, but I never figured out whether I have enough credits for a degree because I became pregnant with my daughter during the last round at Florida Southern in Orlando. After kids, there was no more time for school. So I have a lot of schooling, much of it in English, Writing, Business, Advertising and Sciences. Some other classes thrown in to round out my program, like Psychology and Maths, but I knew then and have always known that I wanted to be a writer. I have been working in web development for a while, but all self taught.
My goals are pretty simple, and at the same time, lofty. I want to make an impact; to be part of the solution. And if it's not too much to ask, write so profoundly that it endures. Some things just stick with you. Flowers for Algernon. Powerful little story. Now if I could only learn profound...
People I'd like to meet
I'll get back to you on this one. Mostly, I like to meet people who are intelligent, inventive and not full of themselves. That excludes an awful lot of famous people. The most enjoyable people I've met recently are the driving force behind growingbolder.com. If the world had more people like Marc, Bill and Katy...we'd all be much better off
