My writing journey began in 2005, after reading the first few Harry Potter books. I decided I wanted to be a writer, and penned my first book, Twila Rootmen and the Legend of Lake Lorvine. The book is no longer in print, but I still think of the book characters every day, and remember the joy of first putting pen to paper, crafting new worlds.
