Writing

Someone once asked me if I had always wanted to be a writer. At the time, I truthfully couldn’t remember ever having any interest in following that path. I had been taking courses in different subjects, wondering what I wanted after early retirement. At the time of that question, I was sitting in yet another class, yes writing.

By the end of that class I knew writing was what I wanted to do. The following is what I have had published so far. I also have a second book, not yet published, and continue the enjoyment of writing, while working on a third one.

Check out my Genealogy page for a list of more of my published works.
