I started seriously writing about 3 years ago as a place to retreat from the crazy world around me. Up to that time my writing was limited to academic research papers and some poetry. Hundreds of articles later and I am still very passionate about writing. I am also an avid crafter and sell my creations on Ebay and ESTY and locally. So watch for my ESTY and Ebay lens coming soon. My many interests include politics, fashion, healthy living, sports and travel.
