As a little girl, I would sit in my room and write stories.
Doesn’t every writer?
The answer should be yes. I would choose writing over friends and television. I would write poetry, songs and stories. I loved it so much I didn’t think to consider it a career. It was something I did for fun. I read everything I could get my hands on, any genre written for any age. If words were woven into a story, I wanted to know what the story said.
I sat down to write a short story and it turned into my first novel, Mercy Killers. Mercy Killers went on to win the YA Molly award, the Daphne Du Maurier award, The Emma Merritt award, the YA authors.me contest, and placed in the Great Expectations contest, the Joyce Henderson contest, and many others.
