Wendy Miller - Author, Photographer, and Mother
I am a single mother who has always dreamed of being a writer. I first started writing hand written stories to show my grandmother when I was about twelve years old. Even then, romance drew me. My grandmother was very supportive, and it was her encouragement that first inspired me to believe that this dream could possibly become a reality someday.
As a single mother, I've spent the last ten years working to support my children, and my writing was more of a hobby when I had spare time. In recent months, it's become clear that my dream could finally become reality right now, and I've focused more of my energy on my writing.
I also homeschool my children. While I fully believe teachers do a great job with what they're given, I also believe that our public school system needs some serious work. The specific school system my children were in was not giving them the kind of quality education I wanted them to receive, plus my children have ADHD, which contributes to making an already poor education even worse. At home, my children get my focused attention and a more well-rounded education than they were originally recieving. I believe the decision about how to educate your children is one that should be left to the family, but I am more than happy to discuss my reasons for homeschooling, and my opinions on why it was best for my family and could very well be best for yours.
I live in Central Florida, and have for most of my life. When I'm not homeschooling my children, working on a book, or spending quality time with my family, I enjoy swimming, reading, photography, and watching movies. I also enjoy TV, and during the summers, I love watching my DVDs of old classics such as Facts of Life, Mork & Mindy, 21 Jump Street or Moonlighting.
