After coming home with six bags of dirty clothes and a three-year-old, I was a wreck, unsure what to do with my life. Over and over I kept hearing my two friend's voices telling me that when I felt anxious or depressed to write. It wasn't as easy as this is sounds, but in 1994 Idlewild & Woodland Park, MI was first. Intended to be a documentary but turned into a gift book with coasters. Next was Just a Poor Country Girl. Then came the hardest one to write, Transitions. I was good at interviewing people, but how do you interview yourself? During the course of writing the book I had to take a vacation from the writing group, took much longer walks and learned to breathe in and out. Finally, Transitions, the first part of the series is complete.
