Hello world! Ramey and all the painted possums have been out of touch for a while! There has been a flurry of activity here in Possum World, now it's time to blog.
I sent ten poems to the Alabama State Poetry Society's spring contests. And this weekend I plan to attend the ASPS conference in beautiful Fairhope, Alabama, one of my favorite spots to visit.
Also, I have sent entries to the Alabama Writers' Conclave contests. The AWC conference is scheduled for the week-end of July 21st in Huntsville this summer, and I look forward to a trip up north for that event.

This is a busy time of year for Alabama writers.
Also, I'll soon have a big announcement concerning my book Sweet Music on Moonlight Ridge. A new edition is soon to be available in ebook and paperback, and I'm working on the second in the Moonlight Ridge Series.

Here at The Painted Possum, I'll talk about literature, fiction, poetry, art, music, Native American issues, family, geneology, POSSUMS and other wildlife. From time to time, I'll post my original stories, poetry and artwork. These are copyrighted and can't be used without my permission.
Sharing the adventures of Lily Claire and Willie T. as they discover the magic and mystery in the woods of Moonlight Ridge has been a great pleasure.
The second book of the four volume Moonlight Ridge Series is on the way, with some unique surprises. Characters from the past are lingering in the lonely, deserted places where Lily Claire and Willie T. spend their autumn days, and a few encounters with spirits on the mountain will lead the two adventurers into haunted, perilous situations. Watch here for upcoming announcements.
