Glad to have you come for a visit!
Grab a cup of coffee or tea and join me as I share some short stories I’ve written recently, and reviews of some books I’ve read. I hope you enjoy your visit here.
I’ve always loved to read; my interest in writing goes back to high school days. I can’t claim much credit for this ability, though; I come from a long line of storytellers. My grandparents & great-grandmother were noted for reciting long poems; my Dad’s brothers were avid storytellers, as are some of my siblings. So it’s in the genes.
I was born, raised and married in Saskatchewan. This is where I love to be, where I can see the open sky, the distant horizon, a zillion stars at night. After years of roaming around, living in five provinces, we’ve settled on an acreage SW of Saskatoon, with nature all around to inspire and delight us.
Bob and I were married in Moose Jaw, SK, but we’ve lived in Manitoba, southwestern Ontario, and Quebec. We have one daughter who’s married and living near us. In 1998 we moved back to Saskatchewan. So our married life has been a “moving” experience; now we’re settled here with our grandchildren close by and we plan to stay put.
I grew up without much religious teaching but became a Christian in November 1974, at the age of 21. My husband and I became members of the Church of God in Christ, Mennonite in Feb 1979. We appreciate the strength and vision of the Church more and more as time goes on.
In 2012 one of my writer friends introduced me to the wonderful world of blogging and I’ve been at it ever since. I’ve dedicated this blog to fiction, but my main blog is Christine’s Collection. Click here for link.
Several years ago my doctor called me up one day and told me that the results of my blood test showed that I had leukemia. Talk about being blown away! Thankfully this was a chronic type, Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia — I’m still here — but I had to take chemo therapy treatments for that from April to Sept 2016. I was a pretty poor blogger during that time. I’m not cured, but the doctors tell me I’m in remission. Thanks be!
I do hope you find my posts pleasant reading and feel free to leave your comments.
