PERRYSBURG - When Mindy (Killgrove) Harris gets time to sit down and write, she considers it break time, time she can spend with the characters she creates.
Harris, of Perrysburg, has authored the first two books of her "Missy Lawrence" trilogy and hopes to have the third written this year.
"I was pretty lucky that I was able to do that and was pretty lucky it's something that comes naturally," she stated.
Harris, who uses her maiden name Killgrove for her books but her married name Harris elsewhere, also is a first-year senior English teacher at Penta Career Center.
SDLqI would love to be a full-time writer. That's one in a million. But I won't quit my day job. I love teaching," she said.
She's been teaching for 10 years, first in Charlotte, N.C., and most recently in Ravenna.

WALBRIDGE - A Toledo company has been selected to do a major road project in the village this summer.
At Wednesday's meeting, council awarded the Union Street work to Crestline Paving and Excavating Inc.
Dave Kuhn, project engineer for Feller, Finch and Associates, Maumee, said seven bids were received and opened on Friday. They ranged from Crestline's low bid of $314,899 to $386,230.
After the meeting, Mayor Ed Kolanko said he didn't know when work would begin, but the project has a Sept. 1 completion date.
It encompasses repaving, updating sewers and installing new curbs on Union, from Main to Dixon streets.
The village has a $209,000 Ohio Public Works Commission State Capital Improvement Grant, also known as Issue 1, for the project. Walbridge has to match it with $209,000.
Kolanko said those amounts will be adjusted to reflect the $314,898 bid from Crestline.
"We're very happy the lowest bid came in below the expected budget," the mayor said.

PEMBERVILLE - Village Council Tuesday unanimously approved a resolution urging the Eastwood Board of Education to maintain an elementary school in the village.
The district is considering consolidating and locating its elementary schools into one building on the Sugar Ridge Road campus with the high school and middle school.
During its Feb. 18 meeting, Council Member Randy Rothenbuhler estimated the loss of Pemberville Elementary would cost the village an estimated $10,000 annually in income tax and the loss from utilities is estimated at $17,500 a year.
Council Member William Long questioned if the resolution was the best way to present the village's support for the school.
Council Member James Opelt said the resolution was a starting point to inform the board of council's position and at the same time indicate support for the school system.
