|My name's Sharon. I am a writer and an artist. I grew up in the Appalachians of southeast Kentucky, and I climbed my side of the mountain searching for wildflowers. That's what I write about, and I've painted a few of them too.
I came from a family of teachers and I was no exception. I taught in Louisville for ten years, then I moved to far western Kentucky, where I lived, raised a family, and taught in the local high school for 27 more years. So I have been east, west and all points in between in this great state of ours. If I stood in my yard and threw a stone all the way straight across Kentucky, it'd probably land in the front yard of the house in the mountains where I grew up. My roots are here and so is my heart.
I have two cats, Jazz and Daisy, and adopted another recently. Her name is Cupcake and she lives in her apartment in my garage. She helps me garden. Jazz and Daisy stay indoors and sleep a lot.
The remnants of my family live in the mountains and in the bluegrass area of central Kentucky. My children live in other states north and south of me. I suspect I'll remain in western Kentucky where I've lived for more than half my life. It's good here, but I do miss my mountains.
So now, welcome to the Kentucky Cubit, please tell us about you!
