Maybe it runs in the family... My sister is an incredibly talented writer and storyteller. When we were little she would tell me stories at night after we were supposed to be asleep.... I am sure my parents knew we were awake as they would hear us laughing. I have never been a creative writer, but as I research my genealogy, my ancestors become characters in my head. I am working on two books now. She has had many short stories published and more on the way, and is completing a novel.
My sister featured me in her blog, and I will do likewise! http://emilyglossnerjohnson.blogspot.com/2013/09/family-sherlock-genealogy-business.html.
