My journey to become a writer began in 8th grade, when I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and pulled from school to recover. During this time, I was left alone for hours on end and it was then that I discovered new friends within the pages of books. I also learned the blessing of creating my own friends by writing down the stories that plagued my lonely mind—as demented as that sounds. Therefore at the ripe age of fourteen, I wrote my first novel. It sucked!

When my son introduced me to Dungeons & Dragons, I became enchanted by fantasy adventure stories and games. Which is rather ironic because I remember an incident from my junior year of high school. One of the other students was giving an oral book report on "The Hobbit" by J.R.R. Tolkien. I sat there thinking "what is a high school student doing reading a book about little people with furry feet and a dragon?". Little did I realize then what an absolutely fabulous tale it is.
