As with most writers, I always loved books. I suppose somewhere deep inside, I could admit I wanted to be a writer but never did anything about it. I guess I thought someone would come knocking on my door and ask me to write a book. That never happened.
As I was nearing my fortieth birthday, someone on some talk show suggested people write their obituary to clarify what they wanted out of their life.
I gave it a try.
One of the things I wrote down was that I was a multi-published author. Wow! When I read those words, something ignited in me. And a writer was born that day.
I always created stories in my head as a child and even as an adult. As a child, my Barbie and Ken got into some pretty complicated situations. As an adult, I would daydream and create stories but never did anything about it. When I had my “aha” moment after writing my obituary, I realized those were the stories I was supposed to be writing down. And so I did, and I haven’t stopped.
I just love creating new characters and putting them in dangerous situations. As I write this today, I’ve just started writing a completely new story with new characters. I have no idea what will happen—only that good will triumph in the end.
