One of my most pleasant activities lately has been working in my yard (known as "Tommy's Garden," a memorial to my late husband, Artist Tommy Thompson). I am happiest when I'm taking care of my flowers and shrubs. I enjoy encouraging, writing about and promoting artistic, creative people such as visual artists and musicians. My work dedicated to promoting my artist husband by writing his newsletter and developing/maintaining his website was a wonderful experience. My background has primarily focused on work as a writer/editor. Today I enjoy reading a good book and traveling with friends.
