My favorite color is blue. When my twin sister and I were born, it was thought that we would die due to our low birth weight and being premature births. Since twin births were rare in our community everyone was praying for our survival. Although our family was mostly African Methodist Episcopalian, my mother agreed to help from the Roman Catholic family members via dressing her twins in blue & white the colors of the Virgin Mary for 7 years, if we were spared. Since we were always had on something blue, I grew to like blue and it becme my favorite color.

Cape Code is my favorite place to live due to the clean air,slow pace and quaint atmosphere.

Tell us about your writing:
How long have your been writing? Was it a dream, a goal or is it just a hobby?
I began writing in 1950. My mother named me after my maternal grandmother who also wrote, loved music and was an excellent storyteller. Back in the day a child was often named ater someone you wanted them to emulate. Besides I found out at an early age that artistic types were held in high esteem. The more I wrote the better I became at writing and since I love words and reading it seemed to be a good fit.
How many hours a day do you devote to writing? Do you listen to music or do you need a quiet place to write?
I spend 3-4 hours per day writing or doing writing related projects such as editing, research, rewrites, or marketing and I will listen to my sounds. However, if I’m working on lyrics I do not listen to music because I do not want another lyricist words in my head.
