Born in Bronx New York, raised in South Carolina's low country, I'm a former administrator of the financial world having previously lent my expertise at both the Internal Revenue and Merrill Lynch. I'm a people friendly, lover of words spelled correctly, person, looking to always expose others to the brighter side of life. This devoted wife and mother of four, enjoys writing anything that tells a story and builds upon the reality that hope is powerful and life is worth living. Writing has been my passion since the young age of nine. And I look forward to reaching out to all of my new readers here on HubPages.
