About the Author
I am a 67 year old woman residing in Paris Ont. Canada. I have three amazing children, two sons in law, and one daughter in law who are just like my own. I brag about my grandchildren two seven year old granddaughters and a seven-year-old grandson. Ron and I were married at nineteen and have been married forty-eight interesting and adventurous years. A severe car accident thirty four years ago caused by a drunk driver robbed me of my careers and left me to live the rest of my life with chronic pain. Until then I was a successful hairdresser, make up artist and a model. To help deal with the daily pain I taught myself to paint. First on clothing, then on walls, wooden pieces, stone and now on canvas. It came as a surprise when that my son in law suggested I write about the hairdressing stories I had been telling for so many years. I have been writing poetry for as long as I can remember but writing a story was foreign to me. I am hoping these stories will inspire someone to live their dreams too. I want to pass my strength on to others. I am working on a sequel for A Hairdresser's Diary and have published a book of original poetry Versify.
