As a child, I never dreamed of being a writer. I was more of a dreamer. It wasn't until I was older that I enjoyed writing, expecially poetry, short stories and freelance. I couldn't see it at the time, but all those little moments helped mold and bring out the desire that was hidden somewhere I didn't know existed.
But it was this one nagging idea that had me so excited, I had to give in. I knew the last word before I knew the first, and I knew the main story line and characters, that to me, seemed all to real.
My main motivation was the "you can do it" from my family that kept me going. I realized they saw something in me that gave me the drive to want to write and see it through. Even if it was never published, I wanted to write.
I have a passion for young adult novels and that's what I love to write. My first to write and have published, Altered a paranormal romance mystery, will be available September, 2011 through Wings ePress or my website www.lauraburks.com. Please stop by for a visit or leave a comment.
