How long have you been writing?

I have been writing since I was a child. I not only kept a diary, but I wrote poetry, cookbooks, short stories, and puppet scripts. I did not begin writing professionally, however, until I was 54 years old. I write nonfiction, so I'm not famous!

How long have you been teaching?

I homeschooled my children from K-12th grade so that counts for something! However, I went back to college at age 57 and received my degree in Journalism at age 60. I began teaching in the classroom after that and continue today.
