I like to write songs, poetry, short stories, psalms, novels and just about anything else that strikes my fancy. I was born in Seattle, Washington, lived there with my mother for three days and then moved south ten miles to Renton to be with the rest of my family. Mary Shegrud (see below) is my main and only squeeze and between the two of us we have 5 sons, 1 daughter and too many grand-kiddies to count. I drive truck to pay the bills, but someday I will finish my first novel, which I fully expect (hope?) will be a huge hit, make me fabulously wealthy and allow me to finally get off the road. I'm a Christian, a conservative, a republican, an avid reader, a terrible yet enthusiastic chef and an excellent and shameless consumer of other people's cooking.
I mainly like to write love poems to my husband Dan (see above), but I've also written a few psalms and other assorted poetry. I was born in Tacoma, Washington and lived there until I moved to Alaska in my late teens. After I moved back to Washington in my early thirties, I enrolled in school and got a Master's degree in education. I taught school for many years and am now retired. I love the Lord, love my family, love my country, love to read, am an unenthuiastic but very good chef (Dan made me write that last part) and enjoy spending quiet time doing 'nothing' with my honey.
How does one write about ones self? In elaborate words with flourishes abounding? Or in simple terms. I am a writer; I think too much, dream off the ceiling and imagine in neon. I like to take something and tear it apart, dive into it, then put it back together. A native of Spokane, I work, dream and play of greater things. I am simple yet complicated because I over think it all too often. I am into trucks, nature, God and friends. And of course Writing!
I was born in Kalispell, Montana but raised in Spokane from the time I was 4 years old. I first found my love of writing (believe it or not) in the 4th grade. We each had to write a short story/book. I did well English class and journaling has become an outlet. Aside from writing, I love to cook and be creative in the kitchen (my mother tells me I should work for Kraft.) I get my inspiration from my Lord Jesus. After all, He is the one who gave me this gift! Sometimes a Christian song will strike up an idea. Although I love to read, I tend to forget to do so. With my ADD it makes it difficult for me to concentrate on one book for too long. That is why it sometimes takes me longer to complete my work. That's okay though.
ROBERT WALKER andJAMIE WALKER
Brought together for God's glory, Jamie and I have been married going on four wonderful years and have a heart and a passion for serving, teaching, encouraging, and building up others in the faith and personal relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus. If we who are in Christ are to be a light to this world, we should not shy away from opportunities that God gives us to share His Son with others. Jamie and I are both disabled at an ealy age and deal with daily chronic pain, but with His help, we press on, because He really IS our strength, no joke. Remember your armor! :)
The power of the written word, of a thought, of a voice, is limitless and all moving, and that is the only thing I believe in fully and without a doubt. My name is Kira, and I was born at a very young age. Ive physically lived in one city my whole life, Spokane, but mentally I've travled leagues. Being 15, it is obligatory I mention that highschool is nice (as far as prisons go), and that my friends and fandoms complete me. Having a history of stress related insomnia, I find as a writer my best work either comes from being well rested and happy, or sleep deprived and emotionally compromised. Either way, you can always turn a bad thing around by creating. And writing is the ultimate form of creation (besides perhaps childbirth). I am passionate about the rights of every person, and I will look past almost anything , except blatant bigoted ignorance. Love yourself, above all else, and never be afraid to love another being. We are made out of stars and chalk dust in the end, so make every action the best you need it to be.
