This is me when I was about 4 years old. I was a happy kid, although my parents tell me I was a bit bossy, even back then. I like to think I was just a leader!
I don’t remember writing much of anything until I was in the 5th grade. My teacher, Mrs. Smith, let us write our own little plays and perform them for the class every Friday afternoon. After I wrote my first short play and my friends and I performed it before the class, I was hooked!
I also loved to read when I was in elementary school. My favorite book was called The Magic Pin. It was about a little girl who had a horseshoe shaped pin. Whenever she wore it, she could talk to animals. Since I loved dogs and wished I could understand what they were saying whenever they barked, I really wanted my own magic pin.
My husband and I have recently relocated from Kansas City, Missouri, to Jensen Beach, Florida. We’re loving it here but it’s taking time to get settled and back to regular writing!
