I wrote my first novel June 2012. It's not something I had planned. I read two hundred and nineteen novel's between Jan. 2011 and June 2012. I thought I would give it a go and see what happens. I was brave enough to let someone read it, and they loved it! I couldn't believe that I could actually write something that someone else wanted to read. I learned never say never!
