Whose biography would you write?

 Someone asked whose biography I would most like to write if I could.
I pondered this for only a moment and then my answer came easily:
  • My mother, my father and my grandparents... because I feel compelled to be the caretaker of their pasts  
  • Mary Webb...  an author I admire and for whose body of work, home, and person I have a deep affinity
  • Evangeline Bellefontaine...  fictional or not, I would love to craft her story into prose 
And in each case, the research trips would be wonderful! 


  1. I love this post! I have never given much thought to whose biography I would write. Thank you for inspiring me to think deeper and to take a few moments to imagine my research trip!

  2. That's a very intriguing question! I would probably start with my family too!
    Thanks so much for visiting my blog -- and leaving your lovely comments!

  3. You're welcome! Thank you both for stopping by. I thought it was an intriguing idea.

  4. My father was one of a family with many children. His father was blind and his mother died in childbirth. I heard some pretty amazing and colorful stories about his brothers. One played baseball for the Yankess with Babe Ruth. So I think I would love to write a biography about them. Great question! :)

  5. I would have to give that question a lot of thought. Years ago, someone told me I should write a book (autobiography) and I said no because no one would believe it and it would end up on the fiction rack. :-D
    Thanks for stopping by and sweet comment on the jewelry I make. Supplies have been put away for a while - guests coming from out of town and I need the table space.
    Hope you are having a great week.
