Dare To Fail - Robert Craig - Keystone Science Center
My fiction books? Grit and Distraction with four short stories will be selling soon. I'm a firm believer in editing until the beat of the piece has a rhythm. My estimation? This first book has taken too long to finish. I'm not a procrastinator but my perfectionism is an obstacle.
They came a long way! Grandpa Mertus sailed to America on the SS Carpathia the ship that came to Titanic's rescue, but not that year. Would both of my Grandmothers have wanted to write? Not sure, but they both read and studied the Bible
Pictures, pictures, pictures!. Photography helps my writer mind relax from editing. Some of my digital work is located on my Pinterest business page under Kustem Creations LLC . You can also catch me on Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram and Facebook.

Used to be in the business world, now I write for my career. My publishing Company is called Kustem Creations LLC . Please contact me if you have questions.
I live in Keystone, Colorado with my husband Dan. Our long lived cats have passed on, and no adoptions are in the news. It has taken both of us a long time to accept the most recent Rainbow Bridge crossing.
I was born in Ohio, USA, and have been a writer and poet my entire life. My poetry and short stories have won awards, and I have been published in different venues.
I'm the middle child of five, two older sisters, two younger brothers. An introvert at heart, nature is both a shield, and an escape from social dynamics. My academic background consists of a Bachelor of Science in Accounting, Cum Laude, from Regis University in Denver, CO.
My home is located at 9,300 feet, tucked up near the Continental Divide in Colorado, adjacent to skiing, and other outdoor sports. It can snow any month of the year. The local rumor mill says there is a twenty-one day growing season from frost to frost. I subscribe to this belief.
I was born a dreamer; I will die a dreamer. Unfortunately, I have never located and high-altitude instructions for life in a harsh and cold environment. Two wood-burning fireplaces help keep out the chill.
My husband Dan is an awesome partner, my friends and family have helped form my spirit. If you want to investigate your life, you might try writing to guide you.
My Poetry Blog - I wanted to become Poet Laureate of the United States, just like Robert Frost.This delusion has never vanished. My poems are diverse. Passion, politics, depression, my love of the outdoors, skiing, and even fiction poems. I've been writing poetry since I was ten.
My Bio Blog - This Blog chats about my life in Colorado, and the difficulty of opening your own Publishing House. I write about my Slovak heritage, and how to keep motivated. Writing a blog helps me edit, and writers block is an ever preset nemesis. Thanks for reading and comments are appreciated.
