Orphaned at thirteen years old, Beatrice found solace in expressing herself in poetry and music. In her writings she has woven the spirit of love into the tapestry of her life. Her poetry is spiritual, grounded in faith and inspired by nature and the simple things in life. Humor is embedded in many of her writings giving cause for lightness of spirit. Throughout Beatrice’s bumpy life journey, faith, courage, and love of family gave her the strength to overcome many hardships and heartaches. May Beatrice bring you blessings and joy!


Linda O'Neill:
Although her professional career was in nursing and in teaching nursing, Linda O’Neill has followed her life-long passion of seeing her Grandma Beatrice’s poems published. This is Linda’s first attempt at authoring a book. Originally from Kirkland Lake, she and her husband John are living their retirement years on beautiful McQuaby Lake, Nipissing, Ontario, Canada. Linda is a mother, a grandmother, a friend and a spiritual director. She likes to spend her days with her family and friends, cooking, preserving the spoils of the garden, making cookies and sharing the fruits of her labour with others. In the summer you will find her outside in the garden or on the water, enjoying her paddle board or kayak. In the winter she loves being out in nature on the trails. She also loves the beaches in the warmer climates. She finds walking every day keeps her active and healthy, both a blessing and a joy. Her motto is “Grateful for Another Day!”
