I'm grateful to have a story in the new Chicken Soup book "Miracles and More." My story is titled "CPR 101."

I've often been asked how I got started in writing and it's simple. I submitted a story and it got accepted. That was the beginning. There seems to be a "rumor" out there that you have to be published to be published. Frankly, I don't know who made that up, but I've heard it over and over again at writer's conferences and it's simply not true.
