Working Now From Memory

The last dozen pages typed out on my old electric typewriter around 1978 takes you through the first half of Chapter 11, and now everything going forward is from total memory.

Profile Information

In addition to being a wife, mother, and grandmother, I have worked at GM on the assembly line, became a legal assistant for 11 attorneys, self-employed in my own cleaning business, ran a successful eBay Store as a trusted Powerseller, and even started up a successful real estate company, The Master Negotiators, LLC, partnering with my husband that has won awards.  In my 50's, I went back to college to pick up the required computer classes to work for a rapidly growing web hosting company.

I am now retired at age 63, and recently stumbled across a book packed away in the closet that hasn't seen the light of day in decades.  I started writing The Truant Risk in the 1970's when I was in my early 20's, but never finished it.  I had typed out almost eleven chapters or roughly 220 pages on an old electric typewriter and stored the uncompleted young adult novel in a 3-ring binder all these years.  It is based on a true story of my teenage years as a runaway living on the streets of Detroit in the late 1960's.  This is my first book, and Katie McDougal is my Pen Name.
