I've been writing ever since getting my first rejection at age 13 - I might just be the queen of rejection slips! But I've published many short stories, articles, essays, children's stories, seven picture books, an early chapter mystery for kids, three romance novels, along with other ebooks which are available on Amazon. Whew! Sounds like lots, but I've been at this for a long time. I love to read, golf and travel, though with all the restrictions on flying now that's not as much fun as it used to be. Spending time with my big supportive family is an ongoing joy. What more could I ask than to live a full life and have the opportunity to put it into words that might entertain someone else?
As I mentioned above, I love to golf and travel - and am learning to play Bridge, though I don't think I'll ever master that! As for mastering golf - forget it! But it's fun, and anything you do that lets you meet and enjoy new people has to be worth more than just the activity itself.
