About Me

My photo

In my old age I  have fulfilled my lifelong dreams to write about my experiences. I now have a trilogy of published memoirs which show how life repeats itself.
 
Now my ambition is to share those writings with today’s readers, because reading about my early problems can help people cope with their own.
 
I know you will enjoy reading about the events of my life and want to talk about  my books to others.

How many of us have been hooked on the Outlander series? Most of my family has, and we're excited just now because it's become a TV series as well. I have seldom had the patience to follow a series, but this time travel author uses real history so deftly that I feel myself truly involved in her characters and their dramatic dilemmas. I am so deep in her latest tome, which takes place during the American Revolution, that I almost feel myself there with her, in the Scottish Highlands in the 18th century. Fantastic research! She must have a busy team for it.

I think inventing a "real world" as this author does, is about as exciting a challenge as a writer can have. Talk about "creating history."
