I am a 60-year young woman who was raised in the beautiful state of Montana. I love to fish, cook, study anthropology, write, and am a huge history buff. I live west of the divide which I can see from my window.
I have four children and 12 grandchildren ranging in ages from 21 to several months.
I have always loved to write. I started writing as soon as I knew how to spell. I can express myself better with the written word than by telling someone. Sometimes I drive people crazy because I am so analytical. I sometimes tend to use the wrong word and upset people so I am much safer writing them a letter. Writing allows me to create my own world with my own characters. Whatever they may be.
I am a true believer in the paranormal and magic that surrounds me. I want to share what a wonderful place this world can be with more than humans inhabiting it.
I have also written a small autobiography under the pen name of Autumn Myst, the book is called Pondering. I used this name because a lot of the true stories in it have to do with family members and they may find them slightly embarrassing. I can admit to it here on Amazon because most people who buy that book won't know it's me that wrote it. Heh! I used an excerpt in the book to answer a question on a social site and so far I have over 700 upvotes and counting.
The book is mostly funny things that have happened. I hope you enjoy it. Welcome to my world!
