They say that your position in your family influences your choices of career, and how you approach life in general. I do know that you are stuck with your position regardless of how old you are. The oldest will always be the one in charge and they youngest will always be treated as the baby, even when everybody is over 60. As the youngest of seven siblings, I decided to turn the tables and take charge. Our family stories were in danger of being lost forever until I hijacked my sister's notes to publish The Gordons of Tallahassee. My remaining brothers also have stories to tell, and I hope that this project will spur them on to completion.
