S. M. Wheeler spent the first 13 years of her life on a slow-motion tour of the United States, following her father’s work in the telecommunication business, with a brief side trip to Jamaica. Settling down at last in Upstate New York when her parents purchased an inn, she spent a difficult year attempting to adapt to the small local school and the company of her agemates. Ultimately, Wheeler’s family made the decision to educate her at home. Some of her time came to revolve around the business, which grew to include a bookstore and restaurant; some of her attention went to the school textbooks from which she learned. Mostly, she read and wrote.
