Hmm. About me? I’m completely stumped. I can’t think of anything that doesn’t sound kind of trite. So I will just stick with the basics.
I am a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. I love children and relate to children so much better than I do most adults.
I have worked in Pediatrics since 1985, back in the days of big hair, synthesized music and multiple movies all with the same bunch of young actors. Of course, I loved every one of those movies, especially “Breakfast Club”. And I think I may have had big hair back then too.
I remember counting IV drips (no electronic IV pumps back then), mixing my own IV medications and taking care of 20 children with 2 Corpsmen for 12 hours (that was back in my Navy days).
I became a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner in 1995. I attended the University of Washington (great school, beautiful campus). I was in the Air Force until 2003.
I have this fascination with ghosts, the supernatural (except Vampires – they freak me out). I watch all the ghost hunting shows. And I have seen a full-bodied apparition. Only once though and it scared me to death. That’s a whole other post.
I am sure there is so much more going on in the world that we just aren’t willing to acknowledge. I believe as children we are much more in tune with the supernatural and the forces that surround us and as we get older, our minds build barriers. Why is that?
I started writing about two years ago, well at least making a concerted effort to write. I find it very therapeutic. It is interesting when you get into the zone, and the words are flowing, it is almost like an out-of body experience. I wonder if that is why some of the great authors self-medicated, because the world in their imagination is much more fascinating than reality.
“From Cornflakes to Eternity” is a blending of my love for children and my fascination with ghosts, ghost stories, the paranormal and the supernatural. “From Cornflakes to Eternity” can be purchased on Amazon.
