Overview
A collection of my work from a lifetime of writings.
Description
A collection of my work from a lifetime of writings. Essays, poetry, humor, magazine articles, children stories, reminiscences, all with a New Hampshire/New England flavor. This self-published book of stories, articles, and reminiscences I first conceived as a means to provide my children, grandchildren, cousins, and close friends access to the collected writings produced throughout my lifetime . . . of which I'm most proud. It has grown far beyond that which I had imagined. Much of the contents of this book has been gleaned from long-forgotten files saved over the years in trunks, boxes, and old filing cabinets. Assuredly, the process has provided me with a joyous trip down memory lane. I sincerely hope the readers of this collection will experience some of the enjoyment that I've had in compiling these works.
About the author
Margaret, artist and writer, and until recently the owner and instructor of Studio 308 in DeLand, Florida, prefers the medium of pen and ink --- worked in minute detail --- and colored pencil with the many intriguing effects it can achieve. Primarily a self-taught artist, her work has earned numerous awards, including several "bests of show," both in Florida and in her native New Hampshire. Also a published author, with a recently self-published book A Sitting Ovation, Margaret has seen many of her writings featured in various magazines. Prior to moving to DeLand, the artist/teacher spent twenty-five years as an administrator in the elder-care industry and a retail business woman all the time pursuing art as an avocation. Although Margaret misses her treasured, seasonally-varied Northeast, she readily admits her love of DeLand and the many exciting and satisfying experiences it has offered her. Having thrived on the thrill of discovering new artistic talent within the lovely old brick walls of Studio 308, Margaret will greatly miss the friendships and camaraderie that exist within the school. She, however, does admit to happily welcoming retirement with its abundant time for developing her personal art and writing.
