When I headed off to college I realized that my parents had left me on the doorstep of adulthood believing everything I did was wrong and useless and stupid. My life as a teenager was highlighted by the presence of several doting boyfriends that helped counteract the unintentionally destructive messages my folks were sending me. Even though the boys were kind of shady at the time they seemed great!
Recently a few stories from my teenage years were published in an anthology called Unclaimed Baggage: Voices of the Main Line. It is presently available on Amazon.com if you’d like to learn more.
