How much do you know about your family...your genealogy? To some, looking into the past is a waste of time, but to me it was a journey to find people that I never knew, yet were a part of me. My mother was in her 40's when I was born and my dad already crowding 50. I was the 17th child born to them.
I never knew a grandparent. Not one from either side. I missed something for not having known them. I also made the mistake of not talking to my parents about them before they, too, passed away. I needed to find an anchor, a sturdy rock, to set my foundation on. So off to North Carolina I went. Thankfully, I had a sister (or two) that wanted to know the same thing. It was a trip into the past. I loved all of the stories, seeing every grave, looking at every picture. If only THEY could have been the one to tell me their stories.
Because I only have partial stories (we do that you know...tell only a part of our story), I get to write the fiction I have always loved. I am an avid reader; now I am an avid writer.
