Writing stories, essays, and poetry is a way of seeking and creating beauty. It also helps us to see beauty in others. Good words — like choice musical notes — quiet the restless soul.
As a reader, I’m particularly drawn to the works of Jane Austen and am a member of the Jane Austen Society (see link on right). Some of my writing falls into the genre of Jane Austen fan fiction.
