I was told once after a traumatic experience, "Write it down, even if no one ever reads it, write it down" I did, no one ever read it but I wrote it down. And I was healed. Since then I have written about other things and am always amused by the sense of humor I never knew I had or where it comes from.

Background Information

I was raised with a dozen brothers and sisters so having a 'say' wasn't possible. But no one can speak louder than written words. Writing was my way of expressing my opinions or ideas without having to endure the critisms, at least as long as no one reads what I write.

I wrote a rather interesting novel a few years ago. Interesting because I don't know where the ideas came from. Almost everything I wrote had nothing to do with my life or any life experiences of anyone I knew. It was interesting to just let the ideas and emotions flow from my fingers to the keyboard without any real thought or plan. It was like the story took on a life all its own.

When we moved to Wasilla I found the manuscript and it is now on a shelf in the office, waiting. No one has every read it, not even I have read it since finishing (???) it over ten years ago.

One day soo I will take it from the shelf and read it. I think maybe I will even publish it here, one chapter at a time. I have already decided NOT to rewrite or change anything. I have it on a disk which should be easy to paste and copy....we'll see.

Birth Place
Talahina, OK USA

I've lived, I've loved and I'm not embarrassed or ashamed of how my life has turned out. I'm not disappointed and I have no regrets. What better accomplishment than that?

Additional Information

After writing Iron Assed and Oilfield Trash I decided to work on stories of my childhood. As much as I enjoyed writing The Story of Dickey Matherne, I have really enjoyed reliving my childhood and in some cases, rewriting my childhood. Most of us wish we could go back in time; writing about growing up with such a large and eclectic family is as close as it gets! Growing Up Burns is the title of my upcoming book, to be released very soon. For readers who who enjoy fond memories of their own early live, I know you will enjoy reading mine.

Favorite Links

The Front Porch Dog
This probably amused me more than anyone else. But then as long as it makes me smile then it was a success!
