Short review + Q&A Biography
How did she become a writer?
"I entered writing through the back door, the picture door instead of the word door."

She tell her stories in her head while she draw but she realize as her stories gets complicated, she needs words too. Not until she got kid and she got her encouragement to fully become a writer. "It sounds like an easy question but it isn't. Ideas come from everywhere—memories of my childhood, stories people tell me, things I see. All it takes is a good "What if" question to begin a story. Sometimes the hardest part is choosing one idea at a time. I have a head full of them—some work, some don't." Where does she get her ideas? "Ghosts occupy a gray area or the twilight zone, so to speak. I've read many "true" ghost stories and have heard dozens of accounts from friends and acquaintances, some of which have been very convincing.

"I suppose you could say I lean toward believing but am not absolutely positive. It's important to keep an open mind. Doubt is good." Does she believes in ghosts? November 1, 2012 Born in 1937 (December 9)
