Who are you and where did you come from?
My name is Gail Truax and I was destined to write. Why? I was born in Rugby, Tennessee, which was settled by Thomas Hughes,author of Tom Brown's School Days. At age 11, my family moved to Kokomo, Indiana which happens to be the birthplace of Norman Bridwell, of Clifford the Big Red Dog fame. As a child, I told stories to my nieces and nephews. Telling a story is still my preferred method of "writing."

Where do you want to be in 10 years?
Exactly where I am now...with my wonderful husband and have the ability to visit our children and grandchildren. That may not be Indiana, but I have heard the saying "Home is where the heart is."

What is the biggest mistake you've made in your life?
So many to choose from...which will I 'fess up to? Instead of going to college I went to work. When I did get my degree, it meant a substantial increase in pay. All those years of lost earnings...sigh.

What would you do for a Klondike bar?
I would dance in the rain and tell a story to go along with it.
