I'm writing a book!
Titled...."Growing up Biracial before Biracial was Cool"

Although based on my life, it will be a Novel.
I just started writing it today! :)

2. Thanks for the encouragement!
I grew up wanting to be a writer, and ended up an accountant.....
but this story is in my head, and it needs to get out! :hi:

5. I read once that when a story is
swimming in your mind and pressing to get out, only you can write it no matter how much or how little it's been covered in the past. There's something about it only you can express. Hoping always that your words and thoughts flow easily onto the page :toast:

Back in the very early 60s, we were quite the sight in france....
as this was before Vietnam, or the liberation of the various colonies....
and so there weren't many minorities around! My Mom would cut my hair like
my brother's because she didn't quite know what to do with it. She finally
allowed my hair to grow when I was around six or seven!

Here's a pic of us with our Mom (who still looks an awful lot like Jackie O to me!)
I'm the small one near the ground!
