Why I Still Love to Write…

Copyright 2018 MillieAnne Lowe, Oceanside, California

It’s not only that I grew up loving the way John Steinbeck writes and how he moves me with his stories such as Grapes of Wrath, Cannery Row, Sweet Thursday, et al, it’s that I have found a way to communicate how I feel through storytelling.

In memoirs, I share the dangers and hurts of my life. In fiction, I try to intrigue my readers to keep on reading to find out what happens next. As I write The Serial Killer of Bush Street, I am eager to find out what happens next as well. I struggle with details to write a story filled with exciting suspense, or a thrilling car chase through the town I know well – San Francisco. I like using what I know about to create my stories. I enjoy sharing the nitty gritty details that a reader might never know about the Chinatown I lived in, or the traditions and discipline I experienced.

Every part of me will disappear when I pass on, so if you are a stranger and never heard about the stuff I experienced since the late 40s, I can give you something to think about, something to enjoy, and maybe inspire you to enjoy your writing, too.
