I began writing poetry when I was 9 years old. Then a few years later, I wrote a chapter book in a coiled notebook I carried with me to and from school. It was about a young boy who ran away from home to the woods where he was taken care of by a young girl who had also run away to avoid being send to an orphanage. She teaches him how to survive in the woods but some unexpected encounters with a bear brings on a turn of events for these young folks. Maybe someday I will rewrite the story!
More recently, I have done a lot of ghost writing for others in various nonfiction genres. As well, I have done three years of editing for other published authors. I enjoy both activities.
Some of the most rewarding experiences I have had are when I researched topics I know very little about. I love learning and so researching is always a fun experience for me.
