Short biography

I was born in Boston, Massachusetts. My big brother was already 8 years old when I entered the family, so I was the "baby" and got lots of attention.

When I was in third grade, my family moved to Brookline, Massachusetts. I got to choose the exterior color of our new house. I chose pink!

In school, I was the smallest kid in my classes. I made good grades, but sometimes my conduct grade needed improvement because I was a chatterbox. I loved to read, but I wasn't very good at P.E.

At home, my favorite activity was playing with paperdolls. I had a shoebox full of them. When I found a cartoon figure or magazine photo that I especially liked, I clipped it out and added it to my collection. I made up relationships and problems for my paperdolls, dressed them, and moved them around in houses and cars and yards that were actually scatter rugs and bedspreads. I made up voices for my dolls and pretended they were talking to each other. http://www.gailkarwoski.com/html/abou...
