I am a former teacher and now am a full-time blogger. I write stories that are about my aunt who was a pilot in the 30’s. I was given her paraphernalia in 1986 when my dad passed away. Inside I found pictures and newspaper accounts of her years as pilot. I was intrigued and decided to write a book about her. I now have 3,000 + pages of research about her and the era of women pilots. I found that the culture of this era was fascinating and that not everyone was in bread lines singing “Brother Spare A Dime.” Around 2012 I realized that I needed to stop researching and write something. My book was going to be a non-fiction, fiction, children story and then I realized that I didn’t even know how to write a book. I discovered that blogging was writing a book one page at a time. I thought I can do that. So the blog began.
I call myself a Plane Nut even though I am not a pilot. I am enthusiastic about the world of aviation. I enjoy reading books, watching movies, reading aviation magazines and blogs. I “talk” with pilots on Facebook and Twitter and learn about their aviation experiences. I have learned so much about the brave women that paved the way for our women of today.
I want to let you know that “There were more than Amelia.” In fact, there were 99 women pilots in 1929. Only one is known today…Amelia. My goal is to bring other women out of the shadows. I guess I’m unique…I am a senior that is just plain nuts about aviation.
Before my interest in aviation I had another passion that is totally related to aviation…movie musicals LOL. I LOVE MUSICALS!!!! I LISTEN TO THE SCORES AND WATCH THE MOVIES OVER AND OVER. The Golden Age of Movie Musicals was a fabulous time in movie musical history. See, I am not a one trick pony!! I am interested in everything. I always say…I want to learn everything about everything. Thank you Google.
I hope that you will follow my blog and leave a comment. All writers like to know your opinion of their writing.
Wishing you blue skies and calm winds.
