As the weeks go on, I am more pleased to be working from home as a freelancer.  My perseverance is starting to show some real results and is giving me the incentive I need to continue on.  I very much enjoy the time I spend writing articles which are submitted on HubPages as well as a few other sites. 

I am a stay-at-home mom who loves quilting, crocheting, gardening and writing.  I also love to read and learn new things.  I am hard-pressed to leave a bookstore without a new book in hand.

I live on an acreage and we have cats, dogs, and alpacas. The alpacas keep it interesting as they occasionally like to pull a Houdini Act, but I wouldn't give them up for anything. I have been working with their fleece and have taught myself to spin on a drop-spindle; a spinning wheel was added to my fiber processing supplies in November 2013.

I have self-published several books in the last year, both fiction and nonfiction. The Hidden Estate, The Uncovered Dream, How to Sell Digital Products Using Sellfy and "Your First eBook" Course are all available on Amazon and Kobo.

I have also added some services to my website which include proofreading, editing, article writing and website reviews. Helping other authors is also something I believe in, so I offer both free and paid consulting and promotion.

I like to take a moment to thank all of those who have commented on my Hubs and to all of my followers. The feedback is very important as it lets me improve where necessary. 

Have a great day!
