Infuriated by bad television script writing in the early 80s and with my parents’ encouragement, I started writing my own stories. Mom donated her clunky old manual typewriter to the cause. For years I either banged away at the keys or wrote by hand. Later Dad the gadget junkie bought some of the early home pcs (the IBM P/S 2 without Windows and the Apple II G/S) for me to spend hours tapping quietly on the keys. Personally I think it was partially because my parents were sick of hearing the bell ring each time I had to hit the carriage return lever on the typewriter and partially due to them fearing I wouldn’t pass high school English with my horrible handwriting.
Wife of a Car Guy, Proud Mom of a Young Writer/Actress, my first love has always been writing. Through all the Ups and Downs LIFE insists on throwing my way, the writing has always persevered.
