I was born an artist even though it took me many years to realize it. Words have always been important to me and writing became a passion. I'm the author of The Duffy Chronicles, a series of children's books, and I blog at Zeroto60andbeyond.com. I'm working on a memoir that I hope to have published early next year. This election year has forced me to speak out about my political beliefs and shine a light on, what I feel, are injustices.
