About the author:
Lenore's poetry and short stories derive mostly from her love of nature and the things living in it, as well as the colorful characters she has known as child and adult.
Lenore became serious about writing at about age 8, with the encouragement of a special teacher. This led her eventually to study English at the University of Washington.
Her experience caring for animals in a veterinary clinic, living in farming country, and working in elder care adds richness and interest to her narratives.
Lenore's creative imagination takes form in her three acre which she calls her Private World. Here, numerous pocket gardens, a cow stanchion (last remnant of her family's farm), a hillside fountain, and other colorful surprises sharing space with chickens, dogs, cats, and a burro. A painting of Gandalf guards one shed-side, Smaug the other.
A respite is found here, for friends and visitors, from city humdrumness. Several times a year Lenore journeys to Western Washington to hike in the Cascades, study and participate in writing workshops. All of the photography shown in these pages are places she has walked and from which she continues to learn.
