As a child I planned to be a storyteller. I wrote plays and essays and poems and told long, long stories full of intricate detail -- a little short on plot, as I recall. Then I planned to write non-fiction for a magazine like National Geographic in partnership with my photographer-husband -- but he never did show up! Then I realized that being a writer required wisdom and I spent the next few decades earnestly engaged in the trenches of life. I've had all kinds of jobs, from piano teacher to on-screen talent to professor. And all the while I did those other things, I thought about what I would write when I finally knew enough. Can't wait any longer. I'm professor emeritus now, and my goal is still the same. I want to be a storyteller who will make a difference to that one person out there.
