My mom told.me.I'd get killed by a serial killer from a truck stop. Then I explained to her that I'm the killer and I dump the bodies in the everglades and feed them to alligators..or in the mountains so cougars get them...or coyotes.

Considering the "thriller killer" novels I've written...you just never know. Lol

My mother just watched some crime documentary about serial killers that prowled truck stops!

I'm late forties and a woman and educated in writing fiction and teaching special education. I write horror, actually, and its fun but I'm not Stephen King, so I need to do something else, too. I wanted to drive a truck in my twenties, but family talked me out of it and into the teaching disaster. Now I'm doing what's right for me. I'm studying for my permit and plan to call back the Knight recruiter as soon as I wrap up a few things at home, and I'm excited about it.

The only naysayer this time has been my adult son, and that's just because he loves me, and he worries. But through a combination of taking my time to get started while I prepare him for the inevitable and educating him on all the positives, he's coming around. Not to mention pointing out how he'll have our whole pad to himself most of the time.

Take him with you then take "home time" someplace fun like Vegas or the beach ;). Free travel expenses.
