April 2012  

My life's goal is to publish my writing. I began here on HubPages and will eventually become published in several genres. Yes, I am an optimist !  

I enjoy writing about anything and everything.  I am looking forward to sharing my writing with a bigger audience.  My current trend is to write about my insights and experiences as a medium / channeler.   

I recently became a practitioner in several healing modalities - Quantum Touch and the Emotion Code and am very excited about this new passion and fuel for my writing.

I also engage in many other forms of artistic expression including making gemstone jewelry, art photography, sewing, crafts, knitting, and culinary adventures.
