Welcome Readers

First, let me answer the question I’m asked most often: how do you say your last name? It’s pronounced CARE. I love that name. It’s what we all should do. Care. I’m a self-published author from the Pacific Northwest part of the U.S. where I live with my Hubby of over 40 years. I’ve loved to write my whole life, but it wasn’t until I retired that I could focus that energy into writing fiction and non-fiction books. It’s become one of the joys of my life. Each week, I post a new blog about the things I see, I do, and I remember. Please join me in my adventures. Read my books. Leave reviews. Tell your friends. Let’s have a blessed day.
