I am a professional with a history in veterinary medicine and marine biology, but a fledgling in the realm of tale-spinning, just now launching the newest stage of my life . The existence of a contentedly settled home life with my man, our dogs and cat makes me whole. I finally took to heart the sage advice from the esteemed author and activist, Sir Armistead Maupin, who advised his audience over two decades ago to 'Proclaim Yourself!'. As a member of that audience, I never forgot. The remonstrance was belatedly acted upon in a mountain wedding two months following the SCOTUS concession of yet one more of our 'certainly reserved rights'. In accordance with the much overlooked ninth and tenth amendments to the United States Constitution. See for yourself. And think on it. Check my publications out at Smashwords, Kindle, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Kobo, etc.. And, please, review my work. ZJ.
