I love living in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina. Inspiration right in the back yard. I've travelled all over the world but find the best place to be is home. I'm still feeling my way in the online writing world and I am thankful for all the good folks here at HubPages who encourage me and teach me so much. 

I have created a website as a resource guide for the working woman - you can check it out here -www.poorwomansguide.com

 

With all the crazy weather patterns, you can't be prepared enough. http://www.stormsense.com/
