Turtle tales : an honors thesis (HONRS 499)
This book is an exploration of the child I was and the woman I have become. I gained insight into who I was as I traveled through my memories and decided which ones I was willing to share with the rest of the world. Sometimes I smiled as I remembered, and sometimes I cried.I used the skills I have been taught in the course of my academic career to present my tales to my readers. Without the support and encouragement of professors such as Professor Margaret Dimoplon, Dr. Michael Covington, and Dr. Thomas Thornburg I would never have dared to write these stories. They gave me the literary knowledge I needed to complete this quest.I have always dreamed of writing children's stories. When I was a child, growing up as an "only," I made up stories and acted them out. This book is a compilation of those stories as literature. I believe that it is a fitting capstone to both my Honors education and my childhood.
