My guest today was born into a family of natural storytellers. Her family moved from Washington, D.C. to a small town in Illinois, and she graduated from Northern Illinois University and landed a special education teaching job. She retired at age 50 and began looking for her next passion. She joined a local writer’s group and began jotting down stories from her childhood. Encouraged by supportive and accomplished writers, she decided to put her stories into a book. Welcome to Authors Over 50, Kathy Gereau.
