Chapter 0 Introduction to Innocent Dreams and Forgotten Memories

I took an undergraduate class many many years ago, way back in 1999 in Creative Writing. I had so much fun with the class and enjoyed the writing so much that I decided after I graduated, and before I started work the next year, to try to write a book. The result of that undertaking was a book that I wrote in 30 days. I began it on July 1st and finished on July 30th. Some days I typed all day long and others I never touched the keyboard. But through out I had my son’s reading everything I typed.

After I finished typing the book, I had several people read it and they told me that I should get it published so for a very short time I also had an agent trying to get this book published. But I soon found that with 2 growing boys and a career that I didn’t have the time to dedicate to getting my book published; so when my contract ended I got my manuscripts back and have just been loaning out my book to friends every once in a while.

Not too long ago I had an idea, I don’t intend to try the publishing route again. But I have friends all over the country that I am sure would enjoy the story that I have written. So I am going to post one chapter at a time on my blog for the next 19 months.

“Innocent Dreams and Forgotten Memories” is about a mother (Forgotten Memories) who gave her daughter (Innocent Dreams) up for adoption, and they find themselves tied together in ways that were entirely unexpected. I hope you enjoy my book and that you have as much fun reading it as I did writing it.
