1237-KA-14470Ever since I was a child, I have had an obsession with books. They have always been my oasis in the chaos of life and I could not imagine a life without them.  My favorite pastime is to curl up with a book and lose myself in someone’s imagination. Whether it be a gripping mystery, action-packed fantasy novel, mushy romance or nail biting war novel, I love to immerse myself in the world of the characters. Even cookbooks and other non-fiction books cram my shelves and have a special place in my heart.

Writing a book is not an easy task, as I discovered when I embarked on my own writing journey. It requires time, dedication, sacrifice, support and a thick skin! Despite the challenges, I love writing! I love to take a spark of an idea and watch a character come to life, complete with emotions, personality, victories and hardships. Writing allows my creative side to come out and play and to become a bigger part of the magical world of books that has brought me so much joy.

There are so many stories rumbling around in my brain and my heart that I hope to share with you someday. In the meantime, make time to read ever day, explore different genres, find a new author, help someone else to read or put pen to paper and let your imagination fly!
