    Wrote Two Novels - Many Years Ago

    I Wrote a Novel Called Moonlit Tours

    I wrote my memoir of manic depression, Invisible Driving, because I had to - literally - to survive.  When it was done, I was free to write whatever I wanted.  In '76 my life was in ruins, my mother had died, father remarried, family wrecked, finished grad school...

    Finally!

    Nonfiction I had already written, but a novel: numerous, but none finished. And now it is! Rewriting, editing, rewriting.. it is not my favourite part of the 'job', but now it is done! And the amazing bit is.. just a few days after sending it off to an agent, I got the idea for a...

    One Small Step

    It was years ago,  now. 377 pages in typescript, bound in blue, with gold lettering. I have not looked at it for a long time. I made a few attempts to have it published, without success, of course.   There follows the final section. Without going into the complex plot...

    I Have To Write

    I have to write. I go to places that I have been and many that I have not yet visited when I write.  I write for myself, but I always have the hope that someone else also will enjoy reading my work.  I always seem to have a nautical theme, because that is all I really...

    It took longer to decide on what story I wanted
