I am a school counselor that lives in Kansas. Writing is one of those passions that never left me and now I'm trying to see how successful I can be with it.
How did you first get into writing?
I'd have to say writing has been a passion of mine since I first understood language and how to put words together. To me, writing isn't just putting pencil to paper or fingers to keyboard. So I've been writing in my head forever!
What made you decide to transfer the writing in your head to something everyone else could read?
Well, I can remember back as a kid in school having little assignments where the teacher would make you write short stories or whatever and since I was an avid reader I always felt that I could create stories just like the authors I enjoyed. In 6th grade in particular I remember writing something that made the teacher so emotional that she shared it with the principal! I thought I was in big trouble but it turned out that they just thought highly of what I created. That's when I knew I could do it. Recently though, I've just decided that it's time to make good on the promises I made to myself as a kid, and that was to write something that more than just two people read.
Evon was a handsome high-roller in Silicon Valley who had a life many would envy, complete with a wife and a lovely daughter. But being careless with his fortune has him prepared to jump off Deception Pass Bridge and he didn't realize the grave consequences his decision to end his life would have on his friends, family, and the rest of Oak Harbor. And how do words from the Bible play into it all?
