Tails and Tales

Margaret Streitenberger, Author

I have journaled forever it seems. It helped to sort my feelings and ideas. It helped me focus a mind that constantly sought new experiences. I have read since I was a little girl and hid away with a good story…….avoiding the call to other tasks. Words excited my imagination and took me to places I couldn’t go physically.

Life and survival took me in many directions mostly with music or numbers. Journaling and reading always helped me personally to maintain my search for me and my ultimate development as a spiritual being.

Retiring from “numbers” I started a pet sitting business. I wrote Report Cards for the animals developing my “tongue in cheek” humor which was essentially a play with words which entertained the families of these pets. Using these, I made my first venture in putting a book together and with the help of a young artist friend, self -published my first full book using a local printer.

That’s how Tails and Tales was selected for the name of this website.

As the tattletale, I told stories about the tails. Many of my as yet unpublished works are stories about my best teachers who have been the pets who allowed me to share their home……….and the RV where we shared our adventures in our travel logs with friends.

I am also pursuing some goals for serious writing challenging all of us to pursue our dreams and become fully actualized humans.
