Authors Who Read Their Work

Started Apr 29, 2010 0 Replies

We are writers with words we want to share, no matter the style - these words come from inside of you, and need to be heard. Why? because someone will be touched by a sentence, a title, a chapter, a quote, a poem, prose... and the list goes on. But…Continue

Profile Information

Who I am: (Web page for book) (to all poetry and writing blogs)
SheWrites to join me on FB
Books I've written, anthologies I've contributed to, and any scripts or plays I've authored:
"WHAT BROUGHT YOU HERE" has been released and can be found on Amazon or at A book of poetry with photos to compliment each poem. The publisher did a wonderful job. It is an introduction and a view at life - much of what I write - bits of memoir set in poetry and prose. Also, imagination and what you see, becomes a picture for another poem. Second book already in the works. This will be called "DID YOU EVER WANT TO FLY?" I can't wait to share here on SheWrites, with so many friends and talented writers! There is a third in the works, and found out plans are made for a collection from those I choose from three soft covered books, to be part of new poems and favorites in a Hardcover Collected Works! I am Thrilled. (Permission given by publisher to tell!)
Previous work appeared in newspapers, magazines and journals. MUSE, Touchstone Poetry Society of NH, Network magazine for International Womens Writers Guild, DisabledUSA, Potpourri a magazine of Literary Arts, Mediphors A Literary Journal of the Health Professions, Hull University England, Lucidity A Journal of Verse, Midwest Poetry Review. Named Women Writer at Notre Dame College in NH and invited to teach at the NH Poetry Society while living in NH. Have been active in many areas concerning healthcare in the US and guest speaker up and down the east coast, all the way to the White House! I am proud to say I am an advocate for people all over this country, and have been for many years. Also, the first campaign manager for Hillary R. Clinton in my area, during her first run for Senate. I believe I could continue, but you have a great look at my past and where my heart is.
Media outlets that I currently write for:
At the present time I do not write for the media. In the past I was quite involved. My extensive bio can be found inside my book WHAT BROUGHT YOU HERE? or on Amazon
My writing is:
Nonfiction, Poetry, Memoir, Journalism, Blog Posts, Screenwriting
Outlets where I review books, TV, or film:
Services I offer to other writers:
See end of statement concerning editing poetry. I have taught Author Presentation and branched into the business community. A special guest at several schools, public speaker up and down the eastern seaboard on Health Care, and devoted much of my time as an advocate for those living with disabilities. My goal is to have more writers reading their work, sharing their voice, and have more avenues for this to happen. I also work one on one with clients who are looking for advise and hands on training when presenting their work to the public, or media. I am an editor for poetry - Poetry Is Life Series and will edit for others yet poetry is so personal it would have to be one on one.
I'm part of these writers' groups or salons:
International Women's Writers Guild - 25 years. Local - upstate NY Poetry Groups. Saratoga Springs and Albany NY and Hudson Valley Region, and for 25 years a member of International Womens Writers Group.
My professional associations:
Many in my past, I had the opportunity through my own doing, to conduct one on one interviews with Presidential candidates for this big country of ours! Talk about being thrilled, and a self promoter. I have said, if I can meet and talk for over an hour with Presidents, then I should be able to meet Bob Dylan, my dream come true. But today, at the present I am working with a publisher on a series of books. I have a wonderful relationship, he understands me, and where my voice comes from. He found my work and me while fighting for better health care on Twitter. And I am always mentioning DH Melham PhD, my Mentor, and a highly recognized writer and poet.

Hi Friends

First and foremost I would like to say how sorry I am for being away so long. I have been quite busy and it has taken me until now, with the new weekly update - that has brought me back to say hello - without excuses.

Since Maureen invited me to so much has happened. Maureen Doallas wrote a wonderful interview in June on her blog and I was so pleased, as… Continue

She Writes on Fridays Post - Foot Prints In Time

Posted on May 28, 2010 at 2:30pm 8 Comments

First I want to say I haven't fixed a thing, it's first draft. Or First Thoughts! for She Writes on Fridays to hear your thoughts - but with the long weekend, I probably won't get back here until Tuesday! So have fun!

Foot Prints In Time

Oh to blurt out words

of yesterday and blend

them into spaces of your

life. . .

To recognize a place

you've been and gather up

laughter once forgotten,

and hear the sound of nature

when -… Continue

A Red Light Warms My Soul

A Red Light Warms My Soul

Rubber hits ice, air escapes

like a bursting balloon

pulling me sideway then

down, as if a giant hole

in the pavement sucked

me into darkness.

Horns muffled and water

rushed inside, touching

my feet, rushing up

to my knees, as cold as

autumn air. I

taste sharp cracks

in ice as if a razor blade

cut my skin.

I can hear the six o'clock plane

heading west, and the… Continue

A Child Buried Today

A child buried today.

I listen to women of

rain. . .

tears covered by veils

of darkness – shadows

of women.

Cyprus, Sri Lanka -

mourn the

prostitution of their

daughters, and

empty stomachs -

deformity, and disease.

A blaze thickens in

a woman’s heart -

Invisible -

imprisons a soul, as

fear saturates their


A brave assault,

motionless -… Continue

Nancy, thanks for the link to your mentor D.H. Melhem. I loved this part of her bio: "I find inspiration in my neighborhood, politics, art, and nature. I call the street “my Muse.”" Will check out her actual work next; sounds like she has dedicated her life to furthering the work of other women as well.

Thank you for your wonderful status update Nancy - you just made my day!

"Oscar" may have to wait a while on my back burner. I just received, from the daughter of my subject, the chronology and other data I have needed as background for the other story I have been wanting to write about a most extraordinary woman, a dear friend who died 5 years ago, but still lives in my memory and my heart. I still have a little more digging to do, but the story is beginning to take shape in my head.

Hi Nancy,
Your kind words of appreciation inspire me to write again. I am so happy about your successful encounter with your publisher and his plans for your books.

I'm having trouble getting DH Mehlam's site to come up; could just be my computer. If you have a good link, can you forward it to me? Would love to follow the lead.

Funny how that works, eh? Maybe you struck a cord with him/her. I came to writing much later than most, at age twenty, but took off running and never looked back. It's a beautiful but difficult living, and I wouldn't have it any other way :) So good to meet you.
