I was the kid sniffing markers and crayons and modelling clay because the scents filled me with creative energy.
I wrote poetry in public school, won a few awards as I got older and ended up published in a few literary journals. The written word has always been my first love.
Today I write poetry, short stories, Young Adult novels and literary fiction. In my heart of hearts I have always been a writer.
