Gloria Hanson has been writing poetry and essays since she was in grade school. As a bookworm and curious teenager, she would indulge in flights of fancy during those long after school hours without television or computer. Following a short career in Biology and a long job as wife and mother, she returned to graduate school to study clinical social work. During her professional life she devoted herself to writing articles in her field. With the departure of children for their own lives, Gloria returned to her early love affair with writing. Now the passion consumes most of her days, resulting in the publication of eight books.
