From my earliest childhood on I was fascinated with stories and books, to the point that I knew most of them by heart. My favorite one was, and is to this day, The Beauty and the Beast. At the age of eight I started in my parents' basement on an old typewriter, typing away on a story for my little nephew. I continued writing for myself, my aunt, my parents. At the age of fourteen I penned a Wild West novel for my father.
Of course I still take as much pleasure in reading as I did as a child. From mysteries to children's' novels, I love it all. And I love to write mystery as much as a children's novel.
