M.J. Van Deventer had wanted to write from the time she was six years old.When she was 12, Burt Lancaster came to her hometown of Muskogee, Oklahoma, to film a movie at Bacone College.She begged her junior high teacher to let her go interview him for the school paper.She even rode her bicycle to the college to do the interview.M.J. said, "I wasn't about to be escorted to my first celebrity interview by my parents and have them hovering behind the scenes."

Now M.J. is Director of Publications for the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum and editor of Oklahoma City's Persimmon Hill magazine, the museum's award-winning quarterly journal on the West.She says, "I'm seldom turned down for an interview request."Her secret is that she "just asks."
She explains, "What I've found is that people, famous or otherwise, love the opportunity to talk about themselves, their projects, and their passions in life.
