How Did You Know You Wanted To Be An Author? I felt compelled to write the story of our son, Jeffery, who was diagnosed with a brain tumour at 13 months of age. I wanted to chronicle what medical treatments such children face, the emotional turmoil for parents such a diagnose creates and the reactions of family and friends. "Not Our Baby" was published in 1984 by Detselig Enterprises (now Temeron Books).
What Is Your Advice For Aspiring Authors? Read, read, read, especially in the genre you want to write in. Then learn the writing craft by taking creative writing courses or doing extensive reading of books to learn about plot, sentence structure, creating interesting characters, etc. Ensure your writing is grammatically correct and well-edited to minimize spelling mistakes. Then write, edit and have your work critiqued. Writers in residence at universities or libraries are there to help.
