Under "2015 WTE and CTE Columns" you will find the columns I write for two newspapers: the Wyoming TribuneEagle, and the Casper Star Tribune.
A writing log appears under "Blog News."
Under "My Writing" you will find several poems from my collection, A Slip of the Tongue; a story, "Off Guard," published in the “Women Working” issue of Sing! Heavenly Muse, the curriculum vita of my working days, a (dated) proposal and table of contents of the book I once hoped to publish.
"Reviews" contains the write-up from the judge who awarded me the 2011 Frank D. Nelson Doubleday Memorial Award, Jeanne Bryner, as well as commentary by Stan Ivester on my work at Anderson School.
Links to my favorite writers’ groups and the websites of writers from whom I have learned appear on "Links I Like." On "Music Gallery" you'll find guitar pieces I've practiced, including YouTube renditions by professional performers.
"Hemp Diaries" is my latest page addition. The "Books Gallery" contains dust-cover copies of some of some of the books I like.
