Many ask me how I became a writer and I always answer, "I've always written."
When I was a young girl, I found writing a natural form of expression. I kept journals as early as fifth grade, but I never considered writing professionally until college. I first pursued radio and T. V. journalism, but found news writing boring. Then, I discovered a creative writing class where I learned the power of words; how word choices and their arrangement evoked specific emotions in my readers. Until five years ago, I didn't know what to do with this skill beyond personal journaling.
