Creating worlds, characters; wielding power like a madwoman making my characters happy, sad, angry, or have no redeeming qualities. I laugh out loud when I am writing a scene, and have been known to cry when one of my favorites has to die.
I am a left-handed Gemini; what do you expect?
Leaving a “continued next week” at the end of my five handwritten pages required each week drove my English teacher crazy. He suggested I “do something about my writing.”
I graduated from the School of Hard Knocks Suma Cum Laude at the top of my class. After 30 years in the Real Estate trenches, I found that truth is stranger than fiction. My books are filled with characters I met in that profession. Their names were changed to protect the guilty.
Making up wild stories, reading bedtime stories to my two children, and creating Halloween costumes from Cowboys to a Dragon, was fun. My yearly newsletters were drafted third-person by my Love Birds, Pesty and Testy, Miranda, our motorhome, or Sir Fit the White Knight, our faithful Honda car.
Writing letters of complaint, expressing my displeasure with services or products. One crucial; a note to our local school bus driver petitioning her to allow our son back on the bus. He was kicked off for making an obscene gesture at his buddy. I reminded her that gesture is a greeting, and “obscenity can be in the eye of the beholder,” He rode the bus until he graduated.
I have been married to the love of my life, Shirl, for nearly 60 years. We-produced two exceptionally talented children and one grandchild, who is our pride and joy.
