When I imagined turning 25 years old, I didn’t consider all the factors that would affect what kind of 25-year-old I would be. If you had asked me at five years old, I likely would have said I’d be a famous singer and living in a mansion in the treetops somewhere. At ten, I would likely have given you some sort of angsty answer that involved ‘just having a job or something’. At 15, I probably would have said graduated from college and having a good job, whereas at 20, I’m pretty sure I just wanted to be happy.
Becoming 25 was a wonderful gift; one that I do not take for granted. I am married, living in Arizona after moving from Connecticut, and I essentially read for a living so no complaints here. I get to motivate thousands of people to read each month in live discussions and chat with readers from all over the globe through the power of the internet.
Yet, I dream of more. I look forward to the day where I’m not limited to inspiring bookworms to read the words of others but instead to want to read my words. I cannot wait for the opportunity to share my stories with the world and all that comes with it.
And that is where you come in, dear reader. I am so excited that you are here and eager to learn more about my process and who I am and what makes me someone worth investing the amount of time it takes you to read a full-length novel. I look forward to sharing my thoughts and struggles and snack foods with you and I hope you’ll share back because, let’s face it, sharing ideas is how we can make the world a much more interesting place.
If you’ve read this far, I admire you and I hope you’ll reach out to me and tell me that you know all about having author struggles and snack foods; let’s deal with that together! In the meantime, I’m off to work my way through another chapter (either in the book I’m reading or in my current writing project) and I hope you’ll join me for wherever this adventure may take us.
Welcome to my journey. I look forward to having you be a part of it.
