(Latest update: November 27, 2016.)
My name is Lori Carlson. I am 50 years old, separated from my spouse (we live in different states) and currently living with my elderly father and brother. I am a Poet and Short Fiction Writer, a Spiritualist, a practicing Buddhist, a Solitary Witch and a Reiki II practitioner. I am also a Mental Health and LGBTQ Rights advocate (I am the B part of that equation).
I write sometimes under the pseudonyms Iona Nerissa and Ravyne Hawke.
I hold three degrees – an AAS in General Studies, a Bachelors in English, a Masters in Arts and Liberal Studies, as well as a Certificate of Advanced Studies in Creative Writing.
I have been writing for more than 30 years and delight in the written word. Poetry is my passion, but I also dabble in prose poetry, novellas, flash fiction and short stories. My muses, Catharine and Evelyn, as well as my Animus, Stefano, keep me quite busy.
I am not professionally published (except for a few poems here and there), but I do not write for publication, money, or recognition. I just love writing and sharing my words with whomever wishes to read them.
What can you expect to find here at A Whispered Wind? Poetry from my archives, new poetry, Flash Fiction and Short Fiction, Novellas, book reviews, book promotions and reblogs from some of my favorite writers here on WordPress.
More of my work can be found at Promptly Written Promptly Written is a where I post short fiction, poetry, etc. from prompts. Feel free to drop by there as well.
