"When did you know you wanted to be a writer?" When asked that question, I always wish I had some witty memory to share as my "ah-ha" moment. Looking back, I can see the forshadowing of 'future author' throughout my life. For instance, I pretended to be afraid of the dark until I was 12, just so I could squeeze books down between my bed and the wall to read by my Snoopy nightlight long after bedtime. And when told I could only check out as many books as I could carry, I managed to stack an entire shelf's worth of books between my chin and fingertips. All that reading turned me into a voracious writer with a passion for thorough research. And I love to write about all the subjects, topics and interests I'm passionate about. This is a taste of my many loves.
