A Little More...
As a child what did you want to do when you grew up?
As a child I wanted to be many things at many different stages in my life. I remember wanting to be a lawyer, a teacher, a writer, and a professional dancer.
What do you like to do when you're not writing?
When I'm not writing I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends. I love to play cards, and board games, and watch television and movies.
What type of books do you read?
I enjoy reading romance novels and books about people beating the odds. I also like to read fantasy and humor books. Pretty much anything inspiring or entertaining.
Why do you write?
I write for the love of it. When I get an idea in my head I enjoy writing it down, making a story out of it and seeing where it goes.
Music or silence?
I am what one would call a "music head". I don't remember a time where I didn't enjoy listening to music. During my childhood and my brief time in college I remember listening to music as I completed my homework and assignments. For some reason I feel it helps me to focus and to this day I listen to music as I write.
