How long have I
Writing has been a passion for me
since I was old enough to hold a pencil. It is my hope
by being dedicated
to my writing, I produce works that will bring not
only monetary gain to my family, but delight to my
readers. Especially laughter. In all the hardships I
have faced- hardships that have included child abuse, severe depression, two teenage
pregnancies, early marriage (16 and in my own
apartment), poverty (living with no electric or water
for two years), two divorces, deaths of people I grew
close to, family disabilities, surgeries, and stressful
jobs- through all of this; I have found that keeping a
sense of humor has kept me alive. It is a theme that is
interwoven into my work.
will add here, that it amazes me to no end, when I
stumble across strong individuals that come from a worse
background than my own. They leave me with a feeling of
gratitude, because I realize life sure could have been
worse. In the trucking industry I have stumbled
across an endless supply of admirable people.
I have been told that
struggle builds character. If this is truth, then I must
be quite a character. Someone will have to let me know,
so I can get back to you on this.
from people who have read my work has been enormous
support. While I can not get everyone to write down what
they have expressed, it has been wonderful to know how
much they have enjoyed The Majorís Renegade. My mother,
who can not read well, has read the book many times from
cover to cover and laughed every time.
What am I doing
We bought a farm, moved three
hundred miles, and the place needs major work. There are
several trailers used for low-income families that have
been allowed to run completely into disrepair. The
floors are rotted and the windows leaking. The people in
this little community really need these places to get
started or back on their feet from their own crisis. This is
going to be a real challenge! We have five finished!
daughter married and bought a house. She lives
far away and works long hours. The apple does not fall
far from the tree!
we say grandchildren? Of course I get the typical rolled
eyes for that one.
has a challenging learning disability, which, I must
admit, is very difficult to deal with. Anyone who has
children with disabilities knows what its like to be on
your last nerve of sanity. My hat is off to all those
sticking with it. She is living with us and most days
loves playing with all the animals.
have plans of rebuilding barns and building up the farm. Of course, the present is
enough to deal with. Presently Mom and my two brothers
are in the process of moving with us to the farm.
Finally some help.
Keep on pursuing
your own dreams. Without them what would life be? Good
wishes to you and keep on laughing!
