Selma Martin is a retired English teacher with 20 years of teaching children English as a second language. She lives in Japan with her husband in a suburb one-hour south of Tokyo. Selma believes in the kindness and goodness of people and in finding balance in simple living. She is oh, so ordinary, and she believes in miracles. She has been writing uplifting poetry in earnest on her website, since joining her first NaPoWriMo in April 2021 and hopes to one day soon publish a book of poetry.
