I blame Pops.
Pops, as I affectionately called my dad, made me write. I wanted to be a professional singer or dentist. I wrote about capturing tadpoles from a creek near my grandmother’s house in Arkansas. I wrote about dementia stealing my other grandmother’s memory. And I wrote letters demanding an extended curfew. And now, I write stories benefitting Minnesotans with clarity and conviction. - Adrienne
