Reading and writing fall into three categories for me; uninterested, necessity, and passion. I can’t say I have ever fallen into the uninterested category (except for the textbooks written by professors with the intent to show everyone how smart they are), but have spent time in both necessity and passion.  In elementary through high school passion ruled both of these areas. Then came marriage, three children in just over four years, college, teaching, and when our children were grown and gone adoption of two Ethiopian princesses.

Now after 20 years of teaching and raising our last two children I’m ready to jump back into the passion stage of writing!
