Taking this step is exciting for me.
I have wanted to write since high school when a teacher encouraged me to become an author.
Although i was born in California, i was raised in the South, moving here when i was three years old. I am married. We have three children and six grandchildren, I have volunteered for everything under the sun. I have worked in the arts, have been involved in politics, have owned my own business and have been in municipal government management.
Over the years, i have written newsletters, specialty magazines, politcal literature, composed ads and a produced a cookbook. I enjoy writing even the mundane newsletters, but i want my writing to go in another direction.
Time has passed without me really following my dream. I never had (took) time to get quiet, think and write. Life moves too fast.
I have been inspired by some friends to "just do it", and I am going to try!
