Hi! I am a retired IT person.I vowed if I ever worked again,it would be something other than IT. I started a shop online selling collectibles. Looking for a way to promote my shop, I discovered on-line writing websites. I have come full circle to find my identity. When I was a child and people asked what I wanted to be, my response was always "an author". All my recipe lens are tested by me, on me. All my hikes and day trips are taken by me before I write about them. (Hoping the hikes negate the recipe calories).
