Louise Narvick

Biography

Originally I had begun writing various materials and projects for a public school system when I was employed as an education specialist. Later I changed careers and worked as a National Park Ranger in a number of parks in the western United States. As a park ranger along with the regularly assigned duties I also did historical research and wrote materials for their official website. Due to the fact that I had these various experiences I met so many people, listened to all kinds of stories, personal experience and encounters I decided I wanted to write stories and articles in my own way without the limiting restrictions of some organization.My latest project has been to write short articles and stories that can be read quickly and easily giving readers some ideas of topics they might like to pursue on their own.

I still get letters and stories from people I had met Some of these have been published. People had gotten quite excited about having their stories included in a permanent collection. For this reason I still am asking people to write to me,tell me things that have been of interest to them or what some of their own experiences have been. It has been so much fun to hear from elderly indiviuals particularly because they have lived through times that we did not know or had any experience of it.

As time goes on I hope to continue collecting and writing about subject areas that are different from the usual more common topics in hope that my readers will enjoy a new approach.

Smashwords Interview

How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I go to different thrift stores and antique stores to find publications that may now be out of publication but have interests worth pursuing. I talk with people about what they read and also look on websites to find interesting books.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
One of my first stories that I started writing in a more serious manner was information about my own family and background. My children had requested that I do this so they would have stories to tell their own children some day.
