I’ve always loved writing and even as a child dreamed of becoming an author one day. I began writing biographies after following the advice of another writer who said, “Write what you like to read.” I remembered how much I enjoyed biographies when I was a kid, especially stories about trailblazers such as Davy Crockett, Daniel Boone, and Elizabeth Blackwell. I decided that’s what I wanted to write. My subjects have included historical figures such as George Washington Carver and Mahalia Jackson, and people in the news such as Neil Armstrong, Oprah Winfrey, and Michael J. Fox.
I still enjoy reading about people – biographies, autobiographies, memoirs, and profiles. That has led to this blog which will include information about biographies and memoirs, the people who write them, and profiles of interesting folks.
