Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Wizard of Oz, I love the Oz books. I read them to escape to magical places. I read them and re-read them, and from that, I developed a life-long love of reading.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
My first story was actually a poem and it was rather lengthy. I was in junior high school at the time, and I showed it to the assistant principal, and he said, "Oh you didn't write that!" I guess that was a compliment :)
