I am a 69 year old early retiree and sole caretaker for my mother.
My first book began as therapy to help me conquer major depression. While writing my normal 3 pages of morning muses I suddenly realized I had begun to write a story.
As Christian I have been a disappointment to myself and perhaps to God. My story was intended to finally contribute something to the Lord's work. I also wanted it to be interesting, exciting, and surprisingly, it turned out to be romantic.
I was originally encouraged by one of my siblings because he thought that I was good with words. Four years hence I am a published author.
