As you can likely surmise from my educational background, I love being a student. I returned to post-secondary as a mature student and I cannot seem to leave! Another one of my passions is writing. I have published non-fiction articles and books, and hope to continue doing that. Recently, I have explored fictional writing. No publications yet, but I am encouraged by a story I read recently about a woman who published her first book at the age of 83, so there is no rush!
