About Me

Writer- Poet, Blog Website, Freelance, Fiction (Essays, Stories, Books), Memoir and Journals.
I enjoy my solitude, but am a caring family member and friend who spends my time between the beach, writing, reading, gardening, traveling and digging into family history.
This me writes & edits & writes some more. Dragging out 30+ years of writing to see where it will lead me next.
This me is Grani, to what seems to be, a small tribe. Okay it is only 5 (now 4), but they sure feel like more. I can't imagine how big the tribe would be if I had more than 2 children.
This me is called Cave Girl by the locals. I don't get out the beach, the P.O., the library, the damn grocery store when I have to, and back to the beach.
This me gardens with mom, garage sales with dad, and hangs with my Alaska family in the summer months.
I am also a widow (2009), lost my sis (2012) and my little grandson (April 26, 2013)

Why do you write?

Writing has never been a choice for me. I am driven to write, can't sleep until it is out, can't concentrate until it is written. My children and grandchildren have fueled a good deal of my creativity.
Issues I feel strongly about feed the fire too.
Lately, I have been fueled fuel by grief...trying to write myself out of it...

Any favorite authors? Books?

Oh, my. I am a voracious reader. I have recently reading a lot about WWI, which started with an incredible book, The Given Day by Dennis Lehane. Ken Follett, Anne Lamott,Dr. Suess...
I'm going to cheat & look at my at my books, then get back to you.

Thanks so much, Patti, for your kind words about Tomorrow. And did you have anything to do with all those views? I'm puzzled.

Thank you for your kind words on " Letter for K". Wow. I'm really pleasantly surprised that people find this work compelling.

Thanks for your comment on "Never Let Me Go". Everyone seems to cringe just a little...(in a good way, I assume!).
