There are many rewards in offering to write people’s life stories. I have discovered so much about how a person goes through all the events in his life and survives the many changes, strengthened by the struggles. I’ve learned history on a broad scale if the person was widely travelled or in the army and I’ve discovered interesting people in my own back yard as it were. Some were musicians, two soldiers and two others nurses- just to mention a few.
Writing for children has also given me great pleasure as I came to celebrate events where I live in Essex County, Ontario. I discovered through research that it is rich in history; it has an annual Harrow Fair that has lasted for 156 years now, a business that was set up in 1941 at Colasanti’s and a bird sanctuary over a hundred years old at Jack Miner’s in Kingsville. In addition the town of Amherstburg was one of the last stops on the Underground Railway so well worth exploring in a novel, An Unlikely Friendship 1846. As you can see I seek to educate as well as entertain children.
