    About "Arletta Dawdy"

    1. Arletta Dawdy

      Perhaps it was being seven years old and sitting at the kitchen table in Dover, NJ, being made to spell my list forwards and backwards that lead me to a fascination with words Or was it being an only child for nine and a half years, making up dramatic scenarios with diverse characters, languages and voices An avid reader, the library was my safe haven where I scooped up five or six books each week in summer from early school days Putting stories on paper seldom occurred to me By high school, I struggled at the notion My high school science teacher pushed me into a horrible, 19th century valedictory that I could now produce true to the era At Occidental College, my first Blue Book was barely a page and a half I wasn t proud of that grade Writing books or being an archaeologist were beyond me I thought I remembered Jane Addams TWENTY YEARS AT HULL HOUSE and turned to social work at San Francisco settlement houses It was a challenging career working with girls street gangs and developing services for unwed parents A spirit of innovation prevailed in that setting Unfortunately, no other social work experiences ever measured up I spent twenty two years in Child Protective Services, gathering much material that I choose not to write.Short stories and poems appeared in my forties pieces I could do midst a strenuous career, active family life and other creative endeavors My husband was from New Mexico and I d already traveled extensively in the Southwest as we continued to do with our children Walking in Chaco Canyon at 4 00 am led to poems as did the crossing at Lee s Ferry, The Garden of the Gods, crossing the Continental Divide A quiet meadow near Silver Creek in the Sierras offered meditation and inspiration In fact, that setting is now the base of a contemporary novella Nature nurtures my creativity and energy as little else can do My first attempts at novels sit in the closet Huachuca Woman and the trilogy are the result of long years of refining my craft, persisting in the face of rejection, and receiving faith and encouragement from my family, friends and supportive writers I have stories to write.
