I was the first girl born to the Milton family in over 108 years, and am the second of four children born to Donald H. and Edythe V. Milton in Greenfield, Massachusetts. You'd think I would have been spoiled---but, trust me, I wasn't.
My Great-Grandmother, Sarah DeWolfe Webster Milton was a columnist for the Boston Globe and other Boston papers in the mid-1800s. I know of one small book she published, and am fortunate to have the printer's mock-up of Inspirations, though not a copy of the book. My father also gave me a large scrapbook containing many of her published columns. Her love of writing passed to my father, who encouraged me. I attempt to honor them both by using my maiden name on all that I write.
After living in many places and overseas, my husband Bob (a 30-year career USAF officer) and I decided to make our permanent home in Manhattan Beach, California, where we resided for 17 years; however, in 2010 we moved back to Virginia, a state we love and where four grandchildren are living.
I have always enjoyed writing, and in additon to being the editor of two small magazines, have written numerous non-fiction articles for newspaper publication; however, 12 years ago I began writing fiction....and it has become passion!
At present, I am working toward publishing several fiction pieces, and am researching and working on a biography of an American hero. Look for an excerpt under "Writing in Progress."
