When I was twelve, I was bitten by the reading bug. It wasn't long after that
when I decided to write my own book. I'd already written lots of poetry and
short stories, so the idea of making the leap from those to writing and selling
a novel seemed easy.
Yes, I had a lot to learn.
Fast forward around fifteen years to the day I told myself, "quit
procrastinating and do it already." And so I finally did take one of the
many ideas churning around in my head and wrote a novel from it. What I found
out after I'd typed The End was twofold: one, I'd accomplished something I'd
dreamed about by finishing that novel. Two - and equally important, in my
opinion - was that I loved writing.

I was bitten by the reading bug at an early age also and I have not stopped. Too much to read, too little time. I would like to win the lottery and become a full time reader. How cool would that be.

I love reading also. I've been reading since I was four years old. I remember reading huge chapter books when I was in grade school, and actually read James Michener's Hawaii when I was 11 years old. funny thing is, I burned myself out on huge 12oo page books, and since I've been in my forties I've been reading lots of paranormal, and urban fantasy. I've read both your previous books, enjoyed them a lot. I just (today) bought your latest with a X-mas giftcard.
