1) How did you develop an interest in writing? I’ve always been an avid reader but never consciously thought about writing until in my early twenties and while pregnant with my daughter who is now twenty-eight. After reading one-too-many disappointing books, I thought I could do better. I picked up a pen and notebook and started writing. For many years I was a closet writer, thinking others would consider me foolish. Then one day my mom read my story ‘Temper Tantrum’ (published now as Tempered Hearts) and she loved it. Of course, moms always love their children’s work, but what sealed the deal for me is that she, an avid sports fan, read it instead of watching the football game that day. After her, my brother (also an avid reader) read it and was impressed. Those two affirmations helped build my confidence and encouraged me to come out of the closet LOL!
