I’ve always wanted to be a writer. Since I began to read chapter books in the third grade, I’ve wanted to write stories.
I have now reached senior citizen status, as of yesterday. My writing “career” has muddled along in fits and starts. I have a degree in English/Linguistics from MSU.
I’ve been paid for my writing exactly twice in my life. The first time about 30 years ago when pregnant with my son. It was a story about overcoming endometriosis. The second time was five years ago for Chicken Soup for the Soul.
