I've been a lover of the written and spoken word since the age of two, and have multiple projects in the works. Two romances, four or five in the detective/spy genre, potentially a YA book, with other ideas struggling to make themselves known every day.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing in high school after a history class project wherein we were to develop our ideal school. Mine, nerd that I am, was a university. After completing that project, I thought it would make a great setting for a story. Over the next two years, the story I'd written had received a high number of hits and a few pieces of fan art that I've kept to this day.
With college on the horizon, though, writing for pleasure had to take a backseat to classwork, and I wasn't able to write again in earnest until 2008, Writing during work breaks and evenings at home was all I could manage for the longest time and I've lost count of how many times the work I'd done had been revised or scrapped altogether, but that's all part of the process.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
3rd grade -- this takes me back -- a one-page work for class that centered on a man looking for answers to his problems and finding what he needed in a library. My hopeless nerdiness was obvious, even then, but it was a private school, so we were all on the same level.
