I have loved writing since I first learned to read. Both my mother and I were savers, so I have stories that I wrote way back when I was an elementary school student stuffed in albums and boxes and file folders. I also have diaries from that era and sporadically up through college. What a gift to be able to revisit childhood and my years growing up!
While I have published non-fiction articles in Chicken Soup for the Soul, Publisher's Weekly, and my local newspaper, my true love as a writer is divided between children's poetry and YA novels. You can read excerpts from both on their prospective pages.
