I consider myself an aspiring writer. My genre is memoir. I’ve been writing—short stories and one novel—since 1996. However, it is only since I retired at the beginning of 2016 that I’ve been writing stories with consistent effort. Because I interviewed his mother in 2005, my first cousin, Ken Neywick of Richardson, Texas, decided I should transcribe the manuscripts of our maternal grandmother, Hazel Willhite Cornellisson. I did so, and distributed copies to family members. I have since come into possession of some old family letters, dated from the 1900’s to 1933. I believe they are of historical and/or cultural interest, and my current project is to transcribe those letters for publication.
