I've always loved books and writing stories. I can remember devouring Walter Farley's Black Stallion series, Gone With the Wind, Manchild in the Promised Land and The Dog in My Life, not necessarily in that order. I was always on the lookout for more good books.

I wrote stories and submitted them even as a teenager. My early creations included Patches the Dog, and Frances, the story of a man who kills a charging bear then befriends the bear cub she was protecting. For the first thirty years of my life I found "rejection letters" to be devastating and I gradually stopped writing.

My husband encouraged me to keep writing, but the closest I got to getting published were “favorable rejections.” I got a big boost of writing adrenaline when I att

“When people work hard at what they do the best,
We often think of them as unlike the rest.
But they aren’t really different than others you meet.
Just everyday people who accomplished some feat.”
Anne Emerick, The Day I Met Dr. Seuss

“If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.”
Toni Morrison

Just everyday people who accomplished some feat.”
Anne Emerick, The Day I Met Dr. Seuss

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt

“Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.”
