…there was a little girl who loved to make people laugh! Michele Wendling (Shelly) Ryan was born in the kingdom of Minneapolis. After being enlightened by great literature (okay, storybook tales), she developed a vivid imagination. Being an only child this trait was useful, although her parents never determined how many imaginary siblings Shelly had.
I consider myself a late bloomer making up for lost time. Don’t let the mild-mannered, middle-aged mom persona fool you. My mantra is “If you obey all the rules you miss all the fun” — and as an Atlanta-based writer and humorist, I rarely miss the fun!
Authors such as Dave Barry and Erma Bombeck are my favorites, but I enjoy all that is whimsical and witty. Laughter is truly therapeutic, and I look forward to connecting with others here at BookTalk.org!
