Sometime people ask me how long I’ve been writing or what my first book was.

Well, the answer is I’ve been writing — or at least making up stories — for a long time. My first book, I’m afraid, had a derivative plot and characters who were thoroughly mired in gender stereotypical roles.

But hey, I was four. Or thereabouts. Nobody thought to date the story.

I do know I cut the pages from art paper by myself and pasted it all together with Elmer’s Glue — the clear, yellowy kind that was applied with the chiseled rubber top of the bottle.  The title is written in my father’s handwriting.

This is my first book, THE GIRL AND THE DRAGON.

Not exactly ready for Amazon, but it always makes me laugh.
Get a load of her shoes!
