By surrounding myself with writers in a critique group and absorbing their wisdom, I began to grow as a writer. In the process, we became family.
c. "Comparison is the thief of joy." Theodore Roosevelt.
By sharing my struggles and challenges in life, my readers have discovered that I, like my characters, have overcome great odds, sometimes sacrificing everything, I hope to inspire my readers to strive, achieve and realize their dreams against all odds, just like my characters.
I took up writing on a whim. Like falling in love, the whim became a passion, whichI hadn't realized I had been missing all my life. I didn’t know I was lost until I found the art of writing. And like the perfect love affair, the writing experience changed me, making me to want to write better and better.
How did I get started? I didn't balk at the fear. I jumped in and did something I had never done before.
How did I know I was any good? I didn’t know. But like any goal, it is only achieved by hard work, study and passion.
