I live in a retirement community at the age of 81 years old. I have had a learning disability all my life, in which I was never inspired to read or write.

I am not sure why I have taken such an interest in writing a book of my own. Writing a book of my own has always been the farthest from my mind.

I spent most of my school years staring out the classroom window. When I started high school, I was so far behind I quit school and went to work.

I never had any schooling in writing or editing. I have written and edited this book by myself, text to speech and speech to text software, and the writing enhancement program, Grammarly.
