Introduction I began writing in my 40's as a catharsis to heal the wounds of the death of my 14 yr-old daughter by a dwi. My first short story about this was published, which inspired me to continue writng. For 25 years my stories, commentaries, and slice of life humor and pathos have been published in my daily and weekly newspapers. I have recently released my first book,a memeoir -about my daughter's death-- . . .AND THE WHIPPOORWILL SANG. It's a funny, poignant celebration of her life more than a eulogy of her death. I'm moving at long last into fiction writing, some of which has been published in short story form. I have a sci-fi YA story all ready to be written up. My dream is to write a complete novel.I believe, at long last I have kept my death bed promise to my daughter and can perhaps move forward now after 27 years.
