I write because my grandmother, Ola Mae Hendricks, taught reading. She taught me, or helped me teach myself, long before I headed to pre-school. She helped me become a voracious reader. If writing comes naturally to me now, it's because of the groundwork my grandmother laid decades ago.
I write to accomplish my mission:
I help small town business people prosper so they can help their towns prosper.
I write. As far as I know, I always have.
