Cheekyredhead

I am a REAL cheeky redhead with a serious side as well. Yes, humor and honesty can be found in the same package! Life is way too short to be serious all the time. Be able to point and laugh which I do often. Perhaps that seems rude but life is what it is. I appreciate real people with real things to say. On-line I am known as Cheekyredhead...an alias I have used since the dawn of time. A few publishers know me as Cheeky Powell. I discovered that hiding behind an alias allows others to easily take credit for your work. I am proud of work, will continue to use my alias, but will also acknowledge my creations, original ideas, articles, stories, & general goofy commentary. True confession: I am a Net-Wit flitting all around the internet, taking part in what I call “mind squats” and pretending to know exactly what I am doing. The truth is that we are all experts AND novices...exploring life and learning more every day.
