Also follow me on:

I was born in Erie, Pennsylvania in 1972. I moved to Kentucky in 2002, and remain in the Bluegrass State since. I live with my husband of 9 years and 5 cats and 2 dogs.

I always enjoyed writing since I was a child. In high school, I always look forward in taking part in creative writing and poetry assignments.

I would later use the written word as a beneficial source in my growth as a person and the processing of my past. Words are so wonderful to me, in my opinion. Words are capable of healing as much as they can be unjustly used for harm.

I began the journey writing on Hub Pages 6 years ago! Wow! I only stayed for 3 1/2 of those years, growing and learning with the hub page community. I made friends and felt grateful for the mentors who would help me grow as a writer.

In 2014, some painful events happened with the death of my sister. I would try to regain the inspirational subjects I grew to love writing about. I just couldn't seem to pull it through the emptiness and shock. It was time to heal quietly and in solitude for a while.

I was disappointed when I did choose to come back to hub pages. I found everything had changed so dramatically and with the new structuring. I felt that I was not yet ready to return.

It has been a couple years since my last debut here on hub pages. I will attempt to see if I can get some hubs published again. This is just to keep my on line presence current and freshly interesting.

I look forward to re connecting with all the favorites and great authors that I have come to respect and am highly fond of over these years. They are some of my favorites and I have proudly awarded many an Author Gold Award because of the enjoyment of reading they’re work. I felt they deserved the recognition and I am a blabber mouth! (Only good things) :-)

I am proud of my feature articles and projects I created. And felt so honored and humbled to have several authors join me in the projects. It would make the Project Good Word Series one of the accomplishments I feel most proud of. I look to the opportunity to create new ones in this new first step in returning back to hub pages and the author community of some of the world's greatest literary Giants!

(To me they are, give them a chance and you may agree. :-)

Happy Writing!

Featured Projects I am most humbled and honored to take on.

* Project Good Words (2014)

* Authors Gold Award (2012)

Ps. My pen name is *Jo Grace* for future published work
