Where does writing start?

I am often asked about my motivation to write The Nash Sisters series. Most of the time my answer includes things like:

“I like to tell stories.”

“My family has provided lots of material.”

“I love to explore history.”

“My journals are full of observations of friendship, family, joy, and sadness.”

I recently ran across something Robert Frost said in 1916 about how a poem begins for him.

There it was!

Ethel Nash rose from my wonder of what it might be like to survive as a young single mother in the age of war, poverty, intolerance, and grief. Then came her sisters who would be the best and sometimes only way to hang on.

Writing non-fiction about leader development, mentoring, training, and coaching managers has spanned most of my career. Leadership in the early childhood education field is where I practiced my skills for more than 25 years. In retirement, my fingers on the keyboard began to write fiction. The stories that come from my head and heart to the keyboard are historical fiction about family, friends, and the resilience of people. Check out The Nash Sisters Novels available on Amazon.
