I’ve been a storyteller all my life, beginning at age seven when my little brother decided he didn’t like the way his bedtime stories always ended the same way. So I began to create new endings for the old stories. Before long we had abandoned the old favorites altogether and I was creating new stories especially for him.
As a teen I wrote short stories, but they were just for me; it never occurred to me that anyone else might be interested in reading them.
After a while, work and life got in the way, and it wasn’t until I reached my forties that I started to write again.
