My love for writing stemmed from reading Fiction novels. The library was one of my favorite places and I made great use of their book lending services.
Reading was never a suggested summer activity for me. It kept me inspired and secure year round. By the time I was 8 years old, I could breeze through a three hundred page novel in 2 days even with school and homework.
Primarily, I was most interested in romance and mystery. Influenced from the "In Death" series by J.D. Robb (A.K.A. Nora Roberts) at age 15, I attempted to write my own mystery romance novel.
My writing style and reading choices evolved with time and adversity. I learned to incorporate bits and pieces directly from my experience to create empathic stories that also serve as a method to self-heal.
