I have created stories...since I can remember. In grade school when I felt self conscious I would imagine people I wanted to meet, places I wanted to go, and things I wanted to do. I wrote them on paper tablets, and read them aloud in the comfort of my bedroom. I never allowed anyone to read them for fear of criticism, but I wrote them just the same. I have always enjoyed watching plays and movies, and was fascinated by poems and short stories about foreign worlds and people. My desire to write was there, but I kept it locked inside.

Always told children should be seen and not heard, I developed my observation skills at a young age. That skill set has stayed with me my whole life. Having, what I like to think as, empathic abilities, I wanted to write in order to be express the feelings observed in others...Always keeping a watchful eye out for anything interesting happening in my small town.

My Junior year of college, I was further introduced to African American Literature and found inspiration knowing someone like me could be a world renowned writer. I gained more confidence knowing one day students might actually read one of my stories as a part of their curriculum. With encouragement from my professor I began to feed my imagination and attempted to quench my thirst for stories that stirred up emotions inside me. My favorite books list includes Their Eyes Were Watching God and I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, both very emotional tales. Even though my area of study was Business Administration, I never strayed from the love I had for writing.

Currently I found the courage to leave my corporate job to try my hand at living my dream as a writer. I brushed off my writing skills and rekindled my love of storytelling.

Who knows, one day students may find inspiration in my words as I found in the words of those who paved the way for me. I will pursue my writing as if this notion is already reality, because I am a firm believer in speaking things into existence. I hope others connect with my writing and learn great lessons as well. I look forward to connecting with my readers and having great exchanges.
