I am an aspiring writer. I started writing as a pre-teen and haven't stopped since. I started with short stories and then developed into chapter books and children's books. I have one published children's book, The Fish and The Coin. It was published through Tate Publishing. I have been a stay at home mom for several years and have not had the time to devote myself to my writing but now that I find myself with more independent children I am ready to persue my talent. I do not have a college degree and I have not had any professional training for writing but it is what I love to do. I love words and how when put together in certain ways they flow like water and can do many things to the readers imagination. Writing is an art and as an author I have the capabilities to infuence a reader's emotions as well as give them information to improve both life and mind. This is who I am and this is why I write.
