Intro of Me

Hello! My name is Laurie McKay. I have 5 brothers and 4 sisters. My mother is 92 this year. My dad, two brothers and one sister have passed. After a tremultuous and promiscuous era in my 20’s, I was fortunate to find my soul mate and I married him. We have a blended family: John’s older son is the center of the universe; my daughter is the Princess of the family; and John’s younger son is the Golden Child.

My bread and butter job is as a special education supervisor. I am in my 33rd year of working in special education, and I couldn’t imagine my life without this vocation.

I have enjoyed writing as long as I can remember. The writer’s bug really made its home in my heart about six years ago when I unsuccessfully attempted my first novel through the NaNoWriMo contest. Since then, I have written two novels that need serious editing and revision work.

Last year, I signed up for the poetry marathon and successfully met my goal of 24 poems in 24 hours. This opportunity catapulted me into a fantastic world of poetry! I joined the Some Poets group. We have one anthology and two chapbooks self-published.

Some Poets challenges and encourages me to write better each and every time I write. I plan to continue to write and to seek publishing when I retire. I am so grateful to Caitlin and Jacobs Jan’s for being the catalyst that had allowed me to develop my writing talents.
