How did you know you wanted to be an author? Since childhood, I have always written. I have written poetry and short stories as long as I can remember. I wrote my first “novel” in high school. While I get very nervous speaking in public, writing has always been a way to express myself.
What is your advice for aspiring authors? Be brave and believe.
Do you have any writing rituals or practices? Not really. Sometimes, the words come easily and sometimes I need to step away. In creating the Itty Bitty After the Rain book, the photographs were the start. In the next two books in the series it was the story first, then I needed to take the photographs that I wanted for the story. I thank God for digital photography.
What message to you want readers to remember? There is beauty and wonder in everything. All ne needs to do is see it.
