I always wanted to be a writer. Digital technology has made the process easier. I recall using carbon paper to make copies--and since I had taught myself touch typing and was less than proficient, I made the occasional mistake of putting the carbon in backwards & having to start over. I now have 26 published titles--bios, short story collections, novels, children's books, and, the creative area I like most, poetry. I do wish Canadian schools would use more writings from Canadians. And I wish this country's publishers would be more accessible. I found a publisher only when I sent my first novel, The Lemon Tree, to England in the early 70s. Only then, would a Canadian publisher agree to co-publish with them.
