How did you know you wanted to be an author?: I loved writing ever since I kept a writing journal in my high school years. I loved reading, had outstanding English teachers, and decided to pursue a college degree in writing and literature. I now hold 4 college degrees, so the love of writing and learning continues.
What is your advice for aspiring authors?: Read, read, read. Be aware of the world around you: the people, sights, sounds, nature, actions, the life stories of others. Live in the moment. These things are the seeds of literature.
Do you have any writing rituals or practices?: See the above. Otherwise, I write when I feel I've observed and reflected upon enough things and ideas to compile a new collection of thoughts.
What message do you want readers to remember?: Writing is thinking. There are stories and poems all around us in our everyday world. We can teach ourselves to notice these, capture them, and value them.
