Welcome, everyone to my site. I chose gazebo gatherings for my website because I had the privilege to walk by Mark Twain’s study when I was teaching at Elmira College. For me, the gazebo is a perfect place to write and gather with friends.

I am a retired English professor who has always wanted to write a book. In 2022, I. was thrilled to publish my memoir, As long as I'm down here, I might as well put on my shoes. It is on Amazon. It is more than a history of my experiences surviving two brain surgeries. It is a love story to my husband who was by my side through it all. In spite of the seriousness of the surgeries, the memoir is infused with my quirky sense of humor. What I learned about myself is that I need to speak up to medical people who aren't listening. This continues to be a work-in-progress, but I am using my voice. Readers have told me it is encouraging to anyone trying to navigate through the medical maze.
