After twenty-six years of teaching, I retired and focused on writing. In the beginning, I wrote articles and lesson plans for BrightHub Education. Then I began writing fiction for young readers. During the pandemic, I have been taking a novel-writing class to challenge myself. It’s a lot different than writing a short story! But the first draft of my first novel, The Right Address, is completed. It’s the story of a twelve-year-old girl and her six-year-old brother, who run away from their foster home. A guardian angel is secretly helping them find a better life.
