Each of us has a different viewpoint.
As I wander through daily living, I wonder about people,
news items, situations, and interactions at public and private gatherings.
What do people do? What makes them tick? Why do they act as they do?
Life can be a puzzlement.
When my imagination shifts into overdrive, I try to weave
what I see and hear into a story, none of which are real, except the
foundations, based on kernels of truth.
When truth and fiction collide, it’s not a total
Writers try to explain, restore, or repair the strange
things that happen to normal characters. The short story is a vehicle,
summoned and expected to do just that. These are my views, designed
to enlighten, instruct or amuse. That is the point of my writings.
VISIONS is another of my short story collections.
So come, enjoy and share with me your time, your space
and your viewpoints.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Reading short stories began when she started school.
Finishing the first story book she said to herself, “I
can do that.” So she began.
She wrote made-up stories and sent them off with high
hopes to every magazine she could learn about. After a bundle of rejections
she said to herself, “How do they do that?”
It was then she began to analyze what made a story.
After twenty-three years of determined research and practice,
she finally was recognized as a writer.
Since then her fiction and non-fiction has found acceptance in juvenile
and adult magazines, anthologies, books, on stage with musicals and
dramas and at recitals.
As a sort of professional amateur-amateur, her creative
instincts led into hand crafts, sketching, painting, and into writing,
producing and directing dinner theater productions, all the while enjoying
the good life with husband, friends, family, a host of other writers
and, she adds, readers and patrons of all ages. She is a long-time member
of The National League of American Pen Women, The Society of Southwestern
Authors and, again, currently listed In MARQUIS WHO’S WHO IN THE
WORLD, 24th edition, with more specifics in her books listed elsewhere
in this copy and available from publisher, NIB Press.
