My thirst for writing started when I was a child, writing simple stories in rainbow-colored journals. When I managed to figure out how a computer worked, I started typing stories and poems and saving them on floppy disks (remember those?!) Throughout school I continued to write anecdotes both as assignments and for fun. I used to write pages of fiction and pass them to my friends between classes. At age 13, I first had the idea of composing a novel, but didn't really think my writing "had what it took" to make it. It took years away from my pen and my blank document computer screen for me to realize that "having what it takes" doesn't make me a writer- WRITING makes me a writer. It is my dream to bring my stories to life and make my readers feel as much enthusiasm reading my work as I feel while writing.
