My writing experience consists of a few letters to my sister. This is my first time atwriting a book.After my stay in Alaska while serving in the U.S. Air Force, I moved to Omaha, NB for over 20 years. I had a dream and then had same dream again and knew I would have to write about this dream someday. Over 30 years later, I decided it was time to start my book in Reno, NV.Respect was a key word in the dream and I felt I needed to write about the importance of this. Could you imagine World Peace thru Respect? the magic mist and my imagination took over And The end result was my book. I need to get this published and out To The world and know the timing couldn't be more perfect than now.I mailed the first chapter to my brother in Kansas and he encouraged me to keep writing and waited impatiently For The next chapter. He died during chapter 5. My sister pressured me to keep writing and with her help and her daughters expertise, I kept at it. I moved back to my birthplace in Herington, KS in 2010 and finished THE SECRET OFMISTY MOUNTAIN.I have never married and enjoy sports, especially softball and bowling. The biggest reward of my life was from bowling. I was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2000 at Omaha,NB.I am retired and enjoy traveling, watching sports and listening To The oldies on the radio.
