I have been writing for a good many years now, the stack of poetry and unfinished novels in my closet will testify to that. A few friends from high school and college might even remember a good deal of time spent with pen and paper in hand. It wasn’t until I was in college that I knew I not only wanted to be a writer, but that it is also my calling. There are many people who go through life not knowing or understanding what their real purpose is. I am one of the lucky ones. I used to think that I was supposed to be a lawyer, and I would have made a darn good one, too, as stubborn and argumentative as I can be, but as it turns out, I’m just supposed to be me.
Well, you might be asking,who are you? I am a Christian, wife, mother, and writer. I have an affection for all things literary. I love the sight, the feel, and the smell of books–old and new. Bookstores are some of my favorite places. In this day of digital everything, I still think there are some things that should never go away. I hope that my child will grow up to enjoy these things as much as I do. To the surprise of many of my readers, I still enjoy writing with pen and paper. I have, however, had to embraced the digital age due to issues with arthritis. It is often difficult to grip a pen or pencil for long periods of time. Typing and speech recognition software make the process a little easier.
Other than writing, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, crocheting, movies, music, art, exercise, sunshine and fresh air. I would love to be out and about all the time if I could, just enjoying nature and all that God has given us which showcases the beauty of His work and the wonders of His love. It is important to include time to stop and smell the flowers when organizing our over-packed daily schedules.
