Author’s Biography

Wilma R. Forester is an artist first but loves to write, whether it is fiction or non-fiction. Of course, she gets to illustrate all her stories. Sometimes when she is deep into a tale, it feels like she has stepped into another world and it is a wonderful place of privacy and freedom where she is alone in control and so she paints and writes.
