I write about events that happen to me and around the world from a writer's point of view. Nothing in my life ever goes smoothly. My focus is on young adult and children's authors, but occasionally I will bring you an adult author. It is my pleasure to introduce new books and authors to my readers. Writing is my life!

I've gotten to Day 7 and love being able to write a poem a day. I hope some of you are writing too and loving all the poems I'm reading. If you don't know what I'm talking about, I'm doing the Challenge on Poetic Asides that I do every April every year. You write at least a poem a day for a prompt that Robert Brewster gives to us. There are prizes for the best poems, but that is not why I do it. I do it because I love the writing and reading everyone's poems. So here is mine for today:
April 7, 2014 Prompt: Write a self portrait
A Portrait of Me
I started as an unpainted canvas young and naive and full of hopes and dreams eager to explore the world and find its wonders grabbing onto the hand of another explorer who swept me up in his tumultuous life moving here and there as the painting took shape and soon I was a teacher and a mother and brush strokes later a writer sweeping over the canvas always my truth that do well unto others and they will do well unto you gathering steadfast friends for the coming storm in my life painting over the faults and the bad times letting the light from the good shine through and now though there is still more room left to paint, the composition is full of all it needs.
