From Western North Carolina (think Great Smokies), love visiting my daughter and her family in Brooklyn. I'm an organic farmer and beekeeper, a business writer and a poet. Can't live without organic food, fresh air, and nontoxic environments (I am chemically sensitive) ... plus books, trees, and Baroque music. Love to travel despite my limitations. I've lived in France, England, Greece and Scotland in my younger days and speak fluent French. One of my books has been translated into Portuguese, and I have done a book tour in Brazil - a challenge healthwise, but worth it.
