Though Carmen McCullough has wanted to write a book for as long as she can remember, when it came down to actually putting together some ideas for one, the Detroit Lakes artist and marketing consultant found herself at a bit of a loss.


"I love books, and always thought I should write one, yet never found a topic I wanted to write about," she said.

"Last year, I promised myself I would either publish a book or take it off my bucket list."

Mission accomplished.
