I am a savvy senior citizen with eclectic tastes and behaviors. My peers and friends think I am a very unique.

Writing was always in my dreams the past 72 years, but life and a career involving data processing and the analytical, logical side of my brain got in the way. Now that I am retired, and very internet literate for an old gal, I am searching for ways to supplement my income with writing. The money I have made from content writing here and on other sites, has whet my appetite for bigger and better things.

I was a hairdresser in my 20s and 30s while I was a stay at home Mom, then after taking college courses I worked in Data Processing for 30 years, everything from data entry to computer programming and analyzing and was the Admin Asst to the VP and CIO of a large computer department. I also was an entrepreneur and owned a resale shop, evolving into costume rentals for a couple years, I have been a community theatre actress, theatrical costumer and all around theatre person for 10 years, and was an assistant to non-profit development directors and real estate agents. I buy and sell vintage lingerie and other collectibles on eBay sometimes and I am a prolific reader. I collect primitive and unusual cat figurines and vintage mexican dolls.

I am single, have 2 big male cats, live in a modest mobile home in an over 55 park in the Valley of the Sun, Mesa AZ where the sunshine keeps us happy! I am active here writing the newsletter, decorating the clubhouse and helping with social functions and the library.

Both my grown daughters and all four of my grown and almost-grown grandchildren live here as well, so I am fortunate to have family close. I lost my son at age 48 last year to a lifetime bout with alcoholism, so I have endured one of life's biggest pains. I have written an ebook called "Mother of an Alcoholic," that is available on Amazon kindle plus some fiction.

This past summer I won honorable mention in a short humorous story contest about my 3-day stay in the hospital following surgery. My first award in writing and very proud of it.

Really great content - however too technical for my audience, otherwise would accept it.
Item is written well and am generally impressed, however not suitable to my audience. Thank you for your submission
