Join GLVWG authors Judy England-McCarthy and Janice Rodgers for an online discussion of writing books.
As both an author and professional storyteller my creative intention is to make connections with people through writing and sharing stories. I hope to entertain, inform and transform people through my telling and writing stories. In this way, the oral tradition can find new life and thrive.
Letters To My Sister, my first published book, is a collection of short stories, a memoir of my family growing up in Allentown, Pennsylvania, during the post-war years. It is a portrait of the people I knew, the places we went, and the events that shaped the person I am today.
With four children in our household, things were anything but dull, which became the source of my inspiration for my stories.
Over the years, I have worked in a public library, a school library, and a newspaper library, so books have always been an integral part of my life as the shelves of books in my office will attest to.
I have always enjoyed reading and in particular storytelling. I do enjoy writing for children and am working on several children’s mystery books.
I just finished the holiday edition of Letters which has even more funny stories of Christmases with the Monahans on Chew Street and Beyond. Christmas Is A ‘Coming is now available on Amazon.com in e-book and paperback. Start a new Christmas tradition with your family by adding these stories to your Christmas collection!
