I always enjoyed reading and writing stories as a teenager. I would write stories and let my aunt read them. She always encouraged me.
As an adult, I love reading Nora Roberts and James Patterson, Kathy Reichs, and Dan Brown. I love their work, because they make you feel as if you are there in the story yourself. That's what I want my readers to feel. When I write, I close my eyes and get a picture of what I'm writing about, and try my best to describe that picture as if I'm standing right there.
Writing is something I love to do. I hope I can be successful in my projects. But no matter what, it's fun.
