Who I am and what I am doing about writing

I have been sending out query letters with our proposal and pages for our memoir, 150 Years of Marriage, a memoir of three love stories, two WWII veterans and their babyboomer children, to agents for some time now.  We have not gotten very many responses.  None of them positive so far.  It took months for us to write…

How I Started Writing

   I wrote my first novel when I was fourteen.

 I wanted to write something exciting, if I was going to write about anything.

The Boston Girl: A Lesson in Sympathy

There is something fascinating about hearing someone talk about a historical event that they experienced firsthand. It’s one thing to read about history or to hear a lecture about history; but to look into the eyes of someone who actually experienced a historical event is the closest you can get to traveling back in time.

I will always remember my grandpa telling the story of when he found out that JFK had been assassinated while watching his parents’ black and white TV. And my…
