Short Bio for Char Potterbaum...
The die was cast when we were given the choice to either help build a little village on the ping pong table, or--write a story about someone who might have lived in the era of the 1800s. I chose to write a story, but since we are talking "Fourth Grade"--I'd never written a story before! So every sentence became a miracle to me, as I saw (and wrote about) a little girl I named Belinda--I could make her any shape I wanted her to have, and she could only say what I wrote out for her--but I was totally mesmerized with the whole process and from that moment on, I KNEW I was going to write books, someday!
    What I didn't know at that time, was that I needed to have my six children first to provide the 'fodder' to write about! But from the time any of them could talk, I started saving notes of their antics--I'd scratch things out on Mcdonald's napkins, backs of meat wrappers, and sometimes even toilet paper, rather than lose the gems they were spewing my way!
     But these are a few of the "High Points" of my life--first, being freed from the tension that creates an alcoholic home by marrying the guy of my dreams--having six incredible kids, coming up with a "Best Seller" in the 1980s--being carried ten feet by the Angels when I broke my leg in three places--being featured on TN Crossroads and being still in my 'right mind' even though I am in my 90th year! I have been SO BLESSED!
