I'm a 40-something woman with one adult son. My wife and I have been married for 3 years, together as a committed couple for 10 years. I am a nurse, a career I began some 25 years ago. I have loved every day of it. I am unabashedly sentimental and romantic by nature. I have no formal training in writing beyond Freshman Comp in nursing school. Whether that's good, bad, or irrelevant is for the reader to decide.
