Writing has been a dream of mine since I was about seven years old. I would imagine stories and write poetry and always had a journal and book in hand. It's been that way for as long as I can remember.
For a short period of time, I fell off the wagon when life was hitting me pretty hard and, believe it or not, the story that pushed me back on was Twilight. I know, I know, sparkly vampires and obsessive behavior isn't exactly romantic, but reading those books refreshed my love for reading and the writing came soon after.
So, what's the point of this? The point is, I never stopped dreaming. Anytime I'm asked what I'd like to when I grow up, I always answer the same; "I want to be a successful author." Some may argue that I'm already successful since I've sought this out independently, but there's so much more that can come of my writing career and I'm pretty lost at how to get where I'd like to be from where I am.
If I may quote the prophetic work Meet the Robinsons, "Keep moving forward". Stay strong and dreamy, my friends!
I'm a writer, a mother, a wife, a friend, a sister, and a daughter. My journey as a published author is in full swing and I'm inviting all my friends along for the ride!
