May 16 -2017 - Loved my Speaking Engagement to third grade class at Karnack I S D in Karnack, Texas! Too much fun speaking about writing to the third grade class at Karnack ISD this morning in Karnack, Texas. I encouraged them to use their imagination, and write a short story this summer while school is out. We laughed through suggestions, and they enjoyed my writing tips. I told them I've lived in the area for 55 years and 37 of those years I have lived here in Karnack, and worked at Karnack High School for 5 years as the secretary to the principal. Then I showed them my books, and told them it all started with a short story. They wanted to know where they could buy them, and if I made a lot of money. Then I told them I knew their parents, grandparents, and greatgrandparents. Sudden excitement burst through the room! "Do you know my mother, do you know my daddy?" They each gave their parents names, and I answered "yes, I knew them when they were here in high school." It was awesome!     :)
