Small Town Girl- My Secret Mission
After I completed Tasman, I promised my husband I’d take a break from writing, but that was a HUGE fib. In actuality, I had been writing a memoir for my family for the last few years and this past Christmas was my due date to have it finished and published for them.
It all began strangely. I started thinking about all the changes to daily life across my decades and, when I had nothing from my novels to share with my writing group, I’d write about one of my remembrances so I could be an active contributor when we met. Interestingly enough, those short blurbs seemed to create remembrances for my fellow writers so I kept writing them. Finally I decided to create a small book for my family’s amusement (at my potential embarrassment). They seem to enjoy finding new information on me hidden in the pages.
As it turned out, I found myself enjoying looking back. I rounded up a few photos and, swish…all 145 pages of Small Town Girl were done, thanks to my wonderful web person Julie’s design skills.
If any of you wish to know more about those growing up years of my long ago, let me know. I’d love to share a laugh and a remembrance or two with you. Contact me via this website or on Facebook and I’ll mail you a copy ($7 via PayPal includes shipping).
