Long before I had an impulse to write, I was reading. Reading was my EVERYTHING! Reading was my escape and means of entering new worlds. Everything was possible between the covers of a book, especially to a little girl growing up in Newark, New Jersey in the 70’s and 80’s.
A 4th grade contest helped me put my first words on paper and eventually it became a means for emotionally venting when I began to journal. Something Oprah Winfrey said on her show reignited my desire to write stories in my twenties.
Then I discovered that with a pen, I could re-write endings to situations in my own life. Now writing is not only a conduit to healing, it’s a means of hugging others through words. Still for a long time, I was too shy to show my work to people beyond close friends and family.
For many years my family and friends encouraged me in my writing but most recently it’s been through many of your purchases and encouraging feedback. Thank you so much! It is truly a pleasure to find out there are so many that connect to what I write. I have since discovered that second chances are my specialty. If you’re a lover of second chances, my books are for you!
Smiles, Hugs & Kisses,
