Hi Zoe, first, tell us a little about yourself.

My passions are being creative, being analytical, and writing stories. I earned a BA in mathematics and became an actuary for twenty-five years. I grew up a Coast Guard brat. From ages seven through ten, I lived in Haiti during the rise of Papa Doc. When I was a teen, home was Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, Cuba. I was there during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

During a summer break from the University of South Florida, I lived in Thailand while the Vietnam war raged. Since my early forties, I’ve loved the Lord, and have taught adult Bible studies and was a BSF children’s leader. Now, I teach the Community Bible Study.

How Writing from the Trenches was Born
By MaryLu Tyndall
Who in their right mind would attempt to create a writing instruction book with nine other authors? It’s hard enough to co-write anything with two different personalities. But nine? Especially because most authors—well, how do I put this gently?—we are an eccentric bunch. It goes with the creative territory, I suppose. We all tend to hear voices in our heads, and most of the time we aren’t even present in this world, but drifting in another time and place, constantly creating worlds and characters in our minds. Try to corral ten people like that and get them to focus on a single task!  Hone…
