About Me
This is the hard part.  Writing an 'about section'...  I've seen some other about sections and, really, it can ruin the poetry of that author.  I'm writing this in case any of my brilliant old friends search for Dori Formby and somehow get here.  You've found me - at least on this site.  Email me now that you've found me!!!
