I've been a writer since the day I started speaking. Yes, even before I could write I was painting pictures of things that were happening all around me, and to me, and to others. Things that I found extraordinary and that other may have not even noticed. Most of the time what I marvel in is the stuff of everyday life. Today, I begin The Chadwick Papers (thank you, Mr. Dickens, and thank you Mr. Christy for naming these adventures and sometimes misadventures) which I hope will keep you amused at times, thinking at times, and realizing that we are all in a "story" together.
