Hi my name is Catherine, I'm the youngest of two girls. I grew up in a little country place, if you blinked while passing through it, you'd miss it. The place was so small, it had one community building, that was the church. The church was used for school also. It had only one store, it was the gas station, the post office and the sheriff ran it. I dropped out of school in the tenth grade, went back to school at age thirty-five and got my GED. I am three subjects away from graduatin from college with my AA degree in Liberal Arts. I lost my mom and father when I was real young, this crated a real hard-ship for me in my life. I am not looking for any sympathy, just acceptance. it was real hard for me growing up. I had the one sister, but we're separated when I was eleven years of age. I've had two failed marriages, and almost a third. My hobbies are reading, cooking, sewing, gardening, crocheting, surffing the web, and most of all writing. I've written several articles for women, and children.I consider myself a universal writer, I don't consider one place for my ideas to come from. At the present time, I'm working on a book for children. With things so crazy in our world today, I think our children more positive influence in their lives. Their little minds are so impressiable.
