Spotlight On Writers
- Where, do you hail from?
I was born in Brooklyn. Unfortunately I had to move to upstate New York because of health problems and the expense involved in living in the Big Apple.
- What is the greatest thing about the place you call home?
The people of Brooklyn and New York City in general are fantastic. There is so much there, I can only say that the Brooklyn Bridge is my favorite. Upstate New York is tremendously beautiful, awe-inspiring in fact.
- What turns you on creatively?
Almost everything, love***nature***dreams and the new technology are some of my favorites. I also have a humorous outlook. Wrote a long series of work poems, these about ordinary workers.
- What is your favorite word, and can you use it in a poetic sentence?
Wisteria mild wild wisteria vines of flowery grapes germ ate.
- What is your pet peeve?
The grubby, rude and crude nature of many. My brain is not your service counter. There is only a thin veneer of civilization apparently. Your being wealthy does not impress me and neither does your so-called pedigree. Also their fabrications (a kind word for lies) are not to be believed. People from Brooklyn know a whooper when they hear one.
- What defines JoanMcNerney?
A hard worker who has been completely self-supporting since 17 years old due to family misfortunes. A lucky duck who met a great guy. A poet who continues banging on the door.
