I now live in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho USA. I began writing inspirationaly after a Near-Death experience in a car accident in 1985. Suddenly one night out came my first piece "Let Not Thy Demons". I also have written a few short stories. I am a Christian, but I'm also into psychic/metaphysical stuff (New Age), and am a great fan of Criss Angel the magician in Las Vegas. I am a survivor of breast cancer for over 14 years. I assure you I don't look like my pic! Ha ha ha You can also find me on Facebook and twitter where you can see a real pic of me... Oh, I have changed my Pen Name! It used to be "C. Gail Fridae" or "Shana Shirrok",and Cynthia Palmer-Ham "Angel", but I've settled on "HAWKTHORNE". I may be more progressive than some people may think, but not all my writing is about religion or God. If you don't like one you may like the next one...they're all dif'rent! Enjoy! I write about life in general...not all love poems...everything's dif'rent! Many different topics! I have gone through and re-edited all my pieces on here several times, so they are perfected "Hawkthorne" style. If you can't pull up my current submissions, just go into the pre- 2012 archives!
