"My next great adventure is actually happening right now. We are putting together an anthology of the writings from Bonnie Mansell's Memoir Writing class. These are the stories that appear in the Downey Patriot each week under the title 'Shared Stories.'
"But once that is done, my next adventure is to write a book. I spend a lot of time thinking about my own life and I've written multiple memoir vignettes. But to tell someone else my whole story is not what I want to do. Partly because there are some things I don't want to talk about. So I thought the perfect way to tell my story is through a novel. A novel that would give the feeling of the times I'm thinking about, 1968 to 1970. It would give the feeling of the times and some of the experiences without having to go through and worry about the details of my own stories. So far, I've written about 20 pages of it. I'm looking forward to that next great adventure."
