I love to write. I write fictional short stories for children and young adults. I think I like to write for the teen/young adult group because I had a hard time during my teen years. I wasn’t very popular, didn’t really date at all. Those years are not happy memories. I had a lot of friends, but none of us were part of the “in” crowd. Although I weighed 120 pounds, I was constantly teased about being fat. I use all those sad memories and emotions to create stories for today’s teens who still have the same types of problems to worry about as well as additional problems, like school shootings, terrorism, crime, etc.
I like teens and often feel they are not understood by adults. I want them to know that I understand and do remember what it was like to be a teen.
Now, my job requires me to work with college graduates, so, I plan to start writing articles for high school and college students on careers and resume writing.
