Writing came upon me like a fever, and rather than exorcise it, I embraced it. Since I'm living in and writing from Canada, and not evangelical, I took the .ca website. Nothing too fiery, we're Canadian, eh? The Real Story A curiosity around my past led me to take up the hobby of researching my family genealogy. We all have crazy family stories that went with the history, mine were just interesting enough to begin writing them down. I was having a casual conversation with a distant relative, when she asked, "Why don't you write these things down?" As I delved deeper, I felt compelled to learn more about the craft of writing an interesting piece. That writing of my own family history led to my finding the story of Walter Crofter (I, Walter).
