I've written for as long as I can remember. In Junior High my best girlfriends and I used to pass around a notebook, each of us adding different parts to an on-going story, and I think that's where it all began. I used to make my best friend listen to the stories I wrote, and I wrote myself to sleep usually. I finished my first full-length novel at 17, in my English class, while the rest of the class was studying Watership Down. Through my early college years, I wrote here and there, and eventually, when I was at home with my firstborn son, I decided to do something about it professionally.
