Writing for me started when I was a child. I was an avid reader and very much enjoyed learning from the adventures that books would take me on, and wrote my own little stories.
Growing up can be difficult. Books can help learn new skills to help overcome challenges in life. An important lesson that took some time to learn was to be myself. Many times it seems that people are always trying to be something that they are not and that it makes them very unhappy. I wanted to inspire children to understand that what matters most is to be happy being themselves.
