Through the years, I’ve pursued many different interests as my life’s path has been curved and varied, but a few things have remained constant.

Travel, writing, art, photography, reading, cats, and of course, my family, have always been with me. My husband and I are avid RVers and spent 4 years after retirement living in our RV and traveling the U.S. This wonderful time gave me the opportunity to photograph some of the most beautiful places in the country, and these photographs are often the inspiration for my hubs on RVing and travel.

In my life before retirement, I tried my hand at many different things – writing, art, teaching, photography, gardening, crafts, reading are all still among my abiding interests. As a mother and grandmother, I have shared many of my interests and hobbies with my children and grandchildren. Now I often share these interests through my writing.

My Hubs have included topics about full time RVing, crafts, recipes and humor to name a few, and I have been pleased to have several hubs featured as HubNuggets Nominees, Hub of the Day and PodCast.

HubNuggets Nominations:
