Background Information

Why do I write? I write because I love words. I love our language. I love the amazing images created from mere black ink on white paper. I have loved words all of my life. I started reading avidly as a child utterly consumed by worlds and characters I would never see or meet but finally grew to know intimately. I fell in love with Rhett Butler. I discovered the Hidden Staircase with Nancy Drew and George and Bess. I am fascinated and awed by writers like Pat Conroy who enable you smell the sea salt and taste the boiling shrimp; writers who can evoke images and emotions so profound and powerful that they linger in one’s mind forever. I love the characters that tug at you to return to them, to pick up the book and enter their realm once more for a little while. I love that I yearn for those characters and places long after we’ve parted, as though homesick or yearning, wishing I could have just a few more moments with them. I love all that I learn from reading, the historical characters and events that I now know so well. I want so badly to be able to give what I have loved getting from others throughout my life – the joy of reading.
