I get asked a lot how I wrote my first book? And why did I decide to write it in the first place?
The truth is I never planned to write a book. I was a journalist, and to me, about 1500 words were my limit, and then I was done.
Books are too difficult and take too long to write.
That was then, and this is now. I’ve written and had traditionally published two books, and I’m working on a third.
The phrase, “children’s orphanages” were not words that ever came up in my life and circles. When most of us think of orphanages, we think of Charles Dickens and Oliver Twist. His story gruesomely illustrates the cruelty of life for children, women, and the poor in Victorian London. He tells of the horrors of life in an unscrupulous orphanage owner like Mr. Bumble, or the likes of Bill Sykes.
