First I live in North Las Vegas, I stay, occassionally, in Los Angeles, will make a permanent move there in the future. I've been a widow since 2010, I am semi-retired. I have a tax business three months out of the year. I'm an artist, sold a few paintings, and a writer, mostly fiction, mystery, and about to embark on romance, very losely based on my past experiences. Haven't had any books published, but have written articles for Black Enterprise Magazine in the past few years, as well having poetry published when I was in my 30s. Have written jokes in which a certain late comedian stole some of my work. I published a newspaper for nearly 9 years when I lived in Seattle (one of the most popular newspaper outside of the larger daily newspaper) that resulted in my having a serious medical condition because of working long hours. Thanks to my belief in God I have made a near perfect recovery, even when my doctor said I would be partially paralized. I got rid of my physical therapist and did my own therapy, had too much more living to do and I was determined.
