I found writing poetry later in life, but once I did I never looked back. With two published books and writing contracts under my name and third book finish and looking for a publisher, I am still going strong. Retired, living in a small town in West Virginia, I am truly enjoying my life in the mountains. I share my life with a silver Lab name Bo, two stray cats, Lucy and Caroline and an old African Grey name Charlie.

Please check my blog where I showcase my poetry. I also have a video on youtube I would love to share.

and here i thought i was the only American on WOL. haha
I live in Texas with a toad, a lizard and the neighbor's cat.
the toad & lizard are okay, but the cat is a bandit and marauder.
unlike the cat, i came to poetry late in life, so late, I have very little
time left, so I write everyday. then I bother people with my poetry.
it's a sad situation for them. for me, it keeps me off the couch
and out of rehab.

I have also come to writing poetry late in life. As well as wishing to stir emotions in the reader it is the effect of stirring my own emotions that was unexpected - and rewarding......
