|Keeba Smith is the seventh hatched in Colorado. Her early interests included political science,
science fiction movies and toying with her brother’s chemistry lab. At a young age, she won a
prize for writing an essay regarding child safety, and consequently, has been steady writing ever
Keeba began writing in Junior High School, which included her first novelette and a collection of
poems. As a youngster, she would write plays and essays for church, in addition, was asked to
write compositions for family and friends. During and after High School, she worked
continually in the administrative field while maintaining several college courses in business,
creative writing and English comprehension and grammar.
While working, she never withdrew from her love of writing and later surrounded herself with
writers’ elite. Later, she would wed a longtime family friend and succeed while studying
creative writing and political science. Her writing and several interests concluded in 1996 when
she became ill and subsequently was informed of a growth on her brain.
Although anxious and flustered, she woke one morning and informed her spouse she had total
peace and was ready to face what may be the end of her life. Afterwards, she stopped
working on her then recent novel, Yellow Rose and immediately began writing her
autobiography, A Spirit In The Dark.
Today, Keeba faces some intricacies, but her dreams are not dismantled. Currently, she is
working on a four-part story, Across the Lines while undertaking the task of writing a friend’s
When not writing, she enjoys photography, building web sites and playing with her dog, D.
Queen. She remains infatuated with the entire process of writing and aims for success on the

overwhelmed to have received an extended standing ovation; it was so exhilarating and most appreciated. I graciously accept being
labeled a restless cynic and dark poet."

purchase them. The following products are good and worth the bucks:
Sulfur hair treatment: If you have an itchy scalp and after trying multiple shampoos and conditioners, you should find
relief in this product. Yes, the smell is not always pleasant to some, yet my spouse says it smells of perfume, either or, it
is worth the relief.
Jergens Lotion: Yes it cost a tad more than some lotions, but it has really helped my dry skin. (Try buying in bulk at
Kroeger (store brand) Lotion: If you cannot afford to purchase the higher price of Jergens, I certainly recommend
purchasing this product for moisturizing your skin.
Ivory Soap: While growing up, we were not able to afford the expensive soaps and Ivory was always our first
choice. As the years pass, I have found that Ivory soap is still my first choice as it keeps my body clean and fresh. All
these years, and Ivory is still performing at an affordable price.
Crest Toothpaste: While growing up, we were not able to afford the expensive brand toothpaste. Back then Crest was
number one and still is today; it is a trusted and affordable product.
Kodak EasyShare Digital Camera: It is not too pricey as far as digital cameras and takes great quality pictures with
HP Computers: This product has made the list for me as I have 4 HP computers and all but one is performing as
expected. The lost-child HP computer is still operable, but struggling yet serves a purpose while storing my large
Sanyo (VCR): I purchased a Sanyo over 20 years ago and it has served its purpose. However, when the remote took
a turn for the worse, I finally had to put it and me out of its misery about a year or two ago.
DirecTV: I consider myself a very reasonable person, but after a messy installation of satellite TV and the ever rising
costs of Cable TV, I certainly recommend DirecTV. I find it to be the best and affordable service in the area. The
installation was professional and their customer service was exceptional.
Realtor: When I purchased my home, all I can say is that I wished I had Ms. Joan Cox at Metro Brokers/Priority
Properties, Inc. as my realtor. She is professional and again, has exception customer service; she tends to her clients
and proposed new clients. She will do everything to earn your business. To me, that is a huge plus in my book as I
cannot seem to find business-minded people. It is one thing to be IN business, but a different story to be DOING
business and that is certainly what you will find in Ms. Cox.
Lowes: Although I hardly shop at Lowes, they are highly recommended for their quality-made lawn sprinkler pipes
Although Home Depot made the list, I would not recommend buy any lawn sprinkler fixtures from them, as they bust
every year. (The one we currently own has been in place for the last two years and has perfomed greatly.)
Home Depot: My former sister-in-law congratulated me when I first purchased my home. However, one thing stuck
in mind when she said, "You’ll never have any money." Well, she was right to a certain magnitude, but when we made
repairs, we purchased all of our supplies from Home Depot. Home Depot is well known throughout the Country, but the
store in Aurora, CO has excellent customer service skills and has everything we need all in one store.

Green Valley Association’s Management Companies. As of today, none of them has been able to live up to MY

I have NOT purchased the product to clean your microwave, as it just seems as if it would be a waste of money.
When cleaning a friend's heavily soiled microwave, I just simply filled a small finger bowl with water and placed it inside
the microwave with a towel. After a few seconds, I opened the microwave and easily wiped away the gunk. Cost? A
