It was late 2014 and I was becoming more and more frustrated with writing. My memoir, full of unpleasant memories, was going nowhere. It was then I stumbled upon the remarkable website, Story Shelter. It sounded interesting, and the stories that people wrote, anonymously or using their name, were fun, crazy, and sometimes very personal. I wondered if this venue would give me the impetus to continue on with my memoir, so I started writing my own stories. How amazed I was when I was told one of my stories, “The Farmhouse”, would be part of a collection of stories published in a book! The book was published in 2015.
