Hello out there! Let me see...how do I start? Well, I'm a retired teacher from Richmond, Virginia (U.S.A.) residing in Athens, Greece. I've been here about a year and refuse to go home because I find the country to be lovely. I'm a retired teacher from the Department of Juvenile Justice. I'm also a writer and my first novel is due out this at the end of November (2009). I'm relaxed, enjoy long walks, restaurants, outdoor cafes, and love to travel. Riding on the back of a motorcycle is even better. Honesty and integrity reign supreme on my list and deceit of any kind is a turn-off for me.
