Fact or Fiction?

Growing up, I loved reading authors of autobiographical fiction. My favorite, of course, was Louisa May Alcott’s legendary Little Women. She drew from her real life to create memorable, realistic characters that have charmed readers for centuries.

Recently, I listened to Thomas Umstadt Jr.’s podcast in which he encourages authors to transform their bio pages from boring resumes to scintillating stories. As a result, I decided to give it a try! I selected key moments and turning points in my own biography, adding some dialogue to spice it up a bit. You might catch several glimpses into the characters and events that have shaped my own fiction.
