I am an author and a history loving Registered Nurse, with a 30 year career in everything from ER, CCU, med-surg, pediatrics, geriatrics, hospice, and psychiatry to forensics. I am currently performing wellness screenings. I am a GA farm girl, transplanted, living in and loving the city life of Orlando, and the sleepy little fishing village style along the coasts.
I wrote “Red Clay and Roses”, a novel that explores civil rights, interracial relations, and women’s issues in the 1950s and 60s. Currently, I am working on a crime novel series. I plan to have three or four novels completed in The Naked Eye series before I publish.
I am also a wife, mother and grandmother, but I created this “About” page not to tell you about me, but for you to tell me about you. I’ve been blogging for a little over one year and, so far, I love it. I am also curious about you. What inspires you to blog and where do you come from?
I don’t profess to be a genius at anything at all. My husband, the rocket scientist, put that name on my blog as a joke when I was reading articles about branding. I wanted a social blog to get to know writers and readers. I thought it was funny and it just sort of stuck. What I am finding as I
begin continue my blogging journey, is that there are zillions of geniuses out here. Whether it is a clever blog post, a photograph, book reviews, some other awesome artistic display, or a fantastically creative blog, it is comforting to know that I am surrounded by a myriad of geniuses.
Just when I began to despair about the direction of society as a whole, I found this whole community with it’s own brand of genius. I wanted to stake my claim, so I kept mybrandofgenius as the subtitle of my blog. I feel that I am in good company with a host of interesting people with meaningful stories, inspiring poetry, beautiful artwork, creative ideas, thoughts, suggestions, and useful information. I am fascinated by you! I am delighted to be here. I learn something every day and I laugh every day, two things that are required to survive in today’s world!
