To be fair to my readers, I had to update my photo to current!

I write. I have to. When I don’t, I fitness box, paint, or hang with children and grandchildren. Author of two published books, No Hill for a Stepper and the Last Bordello, and working on my third.  La Vita e’ Bella especially when…


I like my cyber friends. I may not be able to bring you chicken soup when you are sick, or wrap a blanket around you when you are cold. But I can touch your words on a computer screen and feel their meaning.

Favorite place: Our family homestead.


I’m really good at this kind of gardening:

Oh, and I love shadows.          img_4247    But I love diversity more. Some say America is a melting pot of cultures. I prefer to think of our entire world as a mixed salad, each ingredient complimenting the other.

      1. Hi Carolyn,

        You are very welcome. I had just sent an excerpt of your new book to my Kindle reader of your new book! I will order soon once I get my reading list caught up. I’m honored by your visit! I’d be happy to add your New Book to my “Hot Book Picks” list here if you’d like on my other WP Book Blog?

        Catherine 🙂

  1. I love your page, I took at look at your art page and I love your work, I also noticed that you may be a boxing fan or even a boxer yourself from one of the pieces you did. We should connect and talk boxing sometime. I would have reached out to you but I didn’t see a contact page for you, so you can reach me at mine if you would like to.


  2. Hello Carolyn!

    Let me begin by saying it is a pleasure to meet another lover of writing (and subsequently, reading)! It’s always a huge blessing for me to be able to connect with people that share some of the same interests and passions I do. Also, your dogs are super adorable. Fitness boxing! That’s great that you keep yourself health conscious too, but please don’t hit me if I ever anger you haha!

    Thank you for liking my recent post, and as I peruse through your blog content, I have to say, I really like what you write and I will most certainly follow! 🙂

  3. I love your analogy of the U.S. as a ‘salad bowl’. I once taught a class on ‘Global Cultures’, and I referred to it as a ‘salad bowl’ rather than a melting pot, for each culture retains its own identity, customs and values, while becoming a part of a larger whole. Much nicer than everybody having to melt into sameness.
