This may sound strange, but I'm thankful for a car accident I had in 1992. While the accident was not my fault, it served to end my teaching career, but set forth my career in writing. After a few years of struggling with the pain from the accident, I finally had to face the music and quit teaching. I then started a desktop publishing business from my home, where I could work around my pain.
A few years later, I was approached to write a history book about a nearby township. This started my love of writing non-fiction history books. To date I have seven of them in print. I tried my hand at writing children's books and have two in print. I now have two romances, plus three short stories in print, with several more coming up. So, without what I considered at the time a major glitch in my life, I would not be a multi-published author.
Coming In November, 2015: Christmas Anthology with seven other authors: "Sizzle in the Snow" with my humorous short story, "Operation Santa." It will be available on Amazon.
