There are so many wonderful writers with wonderful stories. The ones I chose to write about in this story have beaten impossible odds. Some others that I feel have inspiring personal narratives are Anton Chekhov, Martha Gellhorn, John Steinbeck and Susan Sontag- just to name a few.

Thanks for reading! I’m glad you enjoyed my story.
