I grew up in Rochester, NY, where I started school long before there were personal computers (much less cell phones). I discovered reading and books at a very early age, but it wasn’t until I was in 5th Grade that it ever occurred to me to wonder about where all those amazing stories actually came from. (If I’d been asked where books came from, I would probably have rolled my eyes and said, “The library.”) But once I figured out that someone had had to write down those stories I found so compelling, it was only a very short step to deciding that I could (and should) do that myself. I promptly started writing my very first book: The War of the Sun and the Moon — the first book of a trilogy (I'd discovered Tolkien by 5th Grade, too); and I was off and running.
Now, many decades later, I live on a dirt road in Orford, New Hampshire, with my husband, three very spoiled felines, and more gardens than I can reasonably take care of (though I have a great time trying!). We're a little more than half a mile from pavement, and while we have electricity, running water, central heating (well, and a wood stove), and fiber optic, there's no TV reception, radio reception is spotty, and there's no cell phone service. And I'm still writing.
