A few years back my lifestyle changed and I switched from writing to painting. It was a fun thing I did with my grandkids. However, now that they're into their teens painting is no longer top on their lists of things to do. So what does a Nana/Grandma do but dig through boxes of unfinished stories and novels and start writing again? I'm going to try my hand at some teen novels and maybe I'll once again catch the interest of my grandkids. All three of them love to read, tell stories and write.
In the meantime, I'm still going to paint now and then because I enjoy doing so. After substitute teaching for the last four school years, I'm finally retired. So I have lots of time on my hands. I'm sure I can paint, write, read lots of books and continue to dream.
Before I forget, I've been reading lots of great, awesome, interesting, enjoyable books. Here's a list of the most recent ones. You can also check out my Goodreads pages for the books I've read over the last many years. There are a bunch of them.
