What inspired you to become a writer?
I’ve just always written. It’s my favorite way of communicating through stories. In fact, when I was little I wrote songs before I wrote prose.
The idea of hope. I hate the feeling of helplessness and most people are so eager to do the right thing and pitch in to help when there’s an opportunity. Also the idea of believing in yourself. Daring to be better, to do better.
All the little stories within the stories. The tiny moments.
Well my husband and the other volunteer have read it, but none of the orphans have read the entire thing, I just asked them about bits and pieces throughout the process. I’ve been waiting for my author copies to come so I can send a few along.
Meeting my readers and hearing feedback that the book affected them in some profound way. I’ve been blown away by the outpouring of love for this book from early readers-I’m so happy.
Sweet, hopeful, eclectic, rich, loving
Write the story that is bubbling up from inside of you. The one you can’t stop thinking about is the one that will take you places.
Probably most things. 😉
