My love of books comes from my wonderful mom, and I began reading before first grade. From then on, I played stories with my best friend, Mary, but it never occurred to write them for anyone but the two of us until many years later. Dad thought I’d never leave Ohio for Colorado . . . all alone. But I did. Move to California alone? I did. Backpack through Central America? I did. Travel alone through Alaska? I did.
I followed my heart and went for experiences every chance I got and created chances when they didn’t appear.
I began writing when I was sixty and my first book, At What Cost, Silence, will be published in October 2023. I will be seventy-nine.
I am one more example that it is never too late to discover your passion and follow your dreams.
Never give up.
