So many books have helped me become the person I am. I continue to learn and grow from the books I read and the ones I write. (One so far, to be exact!)

It has been quite an interesting journey, one of millions of words, to get to this point. Fun and rewarding, yet very challenging. Not something I was prepared for when I started and I feel equally unprepared now. But I keep putting pen to paper! Join me on this fantastic adventure into what it means to be creative.
