What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I learned that I could write when I was ten. It made me feel different. And I have always thought that different was cool. In writing I could be somewhere else without taking off. I love reading but writing took me to another level. Perhaps stories are what we are all about. And writing about it, to entertain people, make them cry, laugh, think, feel, that would be the greatest joy for me.
What are you working on next?
I'm working on a short story for an anthology with my romance class.
