  6. 6. Why write? <ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>I came from a family of incredible storytellers. My mother's people were from the Ukraine and Russia...my father's people were from Ireland. My extended family,(Stewart's family) were from the bayous of Louisiana...also great story tellers. When you are raised on HEARING stories.....NOT SEEING THEM, you become very good at telling stories yourself, so telling is my stock and trade. Writing it all down, on the other hand, came much later in my life. I didn't start writing until I was 41 years old. I started jotting down the various stories that were rolling around in my head and did drawings to help illustrate them. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>Who could have guessed that little girl that was having such a tough time in school would end up an illustrator and author.
