What are your five favorite books, and why?

I cannot tell you why you have to read them for yourself.

Describe your desk
I call my desk and the paperwork on it my organized mess.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing poems at a young age by creating rhyming verse and memorizing it. As I grew older I created more in depth prose and used these verses in my book of poetry Poems: for a rainy afternoon. I later decided to write my first short novel Emma's Heart about 6 years ago in a rough version. Inspired by short stories I was writing for an English class I decided to re write the novel and publish it here.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Strong woman struggles to survive and although odds are against her she triumphs to overcome them.
