I have been a freelance writer for several years. I am in my second year of getting my PhD in Psychology, plan on teaching psychology at one of the local colleges here, while doing research on several subjects related to addiction, domestic abuse, and homelessness. I have 8 grown children and 20 grandchildren, live on Table Rock Lake in the Missouri Ozarks, love photography, birds, wildflowers, and anything to do with nature. Writing is my second passion. I have been writing professionally for about six years on many different subjects. I will continue to write for as long as I am able because I love sharing what I know with others and helping people become familiar with nature.
