Florida writer living in
the Pacific Northwest
I never expected to leave the beach, palm trees, and glorious sunsets of Florida. Seriously! I even have a master’s degree in Florida Studies. So, my move to Washington, the Evergreen State, had to be from a powerful pull. It was; in 2020, my husband Dave and I became grandparents to twin grandsons, and their brother who was born in 2022. Grandparenting adds a new busy dimension to our lives and readers might assume my interest in Florida nature and architecture has faded. But I’m curious about those things here in the PNW too. I’m looking forward to learning like a kid again and having three little guys join me on my explorations!
You’ll find my writings about Florida, North Carolina, and Washington here, along with a new tab, poetry and maybe some drawings. So the journey continues. You’re welcome to come along.
