It all started when…

Being that kid who wanted to grow up to be a writer? Yup, that’s me. Hundreds of scribbled pages, head in the clouds, desk drawers filled with notebooks & floppy discs (I’m dating myself here) with tales that went on endlessly and never seemed to finish. But boy, I thought if I could get it all down on paper, they would be great. At age five, I knew I wanted to be a writer. My first book was called, Me and My Alien Friend, and I still have the copy I illustrated on construction paper.

Flash forward to high school, years of writing on loose leaf (stacks of half-finished books), working on my dad’s incredibly slow computer, and eventually my own laptop, and the writing keeps coming—a whole lot of writing. But there’s always been a problem: I could never get over the hump. Many of the stories went unfinished. Numerous works went in the delete file or were lost.

And then I discovered suspense—and it’s been a light bulb moment. I finally found my genre. Suspense is my jam and is what keeps me writing. And I have fun putting all the pieces together with twists & turns along the way.

So here’s to the wait…

And here’s to finding out if someone will buy my stories.

Because, thinking back, when I was just five, Me and my Alien Friend was only the beginning…
