Welcome to the Mighty Pens 2021! This year we have so many wonderful volunteers standing behind us and we want to make sure everyone gets the recognition they deserve.

A: I love to crochet, Writing.. can’t forget the writing, Cooking/baking, I love cozy mysteries, mysteries. Even that I was born smack dab in the middle of summer/August. I have a strong aversion to summer. I prefer the autumn chill and winter.
