I've had a love affair with books from a very young age. In the 7th grade, my teacher challenged the class to read one book a month and write a one-page book report on each book for a little extra credit. She had to have a parent-teacher conference with my father because I ended up reading over 10 books each month...skewing my grade and giving me a tremendously unfair advantage.
When I am reading, I become the story and the story becomes me. I internalize it and it blossoms into something that is real and tangible. I breathe it, I dream it, I obsess over it and allow it to whisk me away.
I am an amature writer in my personal time and a copywriter in the professional world.
Words amaze me. Grammar and sentence construction rope me in. Everything about the written word caresses me intellectually. I am working on a fiction book in my spare time that I hope to one day see published. In the meantime, I am here...learning, growing and enjoying the beauty of Words.
