Coming home from Broome Community College, September 24, 1985, a life-threatening accident. I suffered a broken neck, and head injury, knocked into coma for 9 weeks. Then, took Speech Therapy to talk, Cognitive Therapy for motor skills, and Physical Therapy to learn to walk, again. Returned to BCC, fall '86. I failed out of Computer Technology, because I lost computer learning years. Thankfully, I remembered learning creative writing, 8th Grade English, 1980, because I received A's in: Written Expression 1 & 2. I received a Marketing Degree, '90. Took an aptitude test, and was enrolled into the Institute of Children's Literature, receiving a degree, 1993.
