Real Life Trumps Fiction
Libby J. Atwater Real Life Trumps Fiction I chose to become a nonfiction writer because I believe that real life trumps fiction. My life has been filled with events that prove this, beginning on the day I was born. My Italian birth mother did not know she was expecting, nor did her parents. They thought she'd been eating too much pasta. I made my entry one winter Sunday afternoon and was immediately placed with an older Orthodox Jewish couple who became my parents. They already had adopted a girl, then four years old, who became my sister and source of torment. Our middle class lives fell apart when family secrets surfaced and led to the dissolution of our immediate family and the loss of our home and possessions. During my tumultuous teens I knew that education offered a way to improve my life. While at university, I met my soulmate. Over four decades we've experienced joy and sorrow. Perhaps the best surprise I gave him was a mother-in-law at age 57, for that is when I found my birth family and enjoyed a great reunion.
