I’ve wanted to be a writer since I was seven years old. I had devoured the Little House on the Prairie books and discovered that the author Laura Ingalls Wilder had been an ordinary woman writing about her life. I figured that if she could write, then so could I.
I have some success writing. My work has appeared in some newspapers and magazines and on a few websites. I have a day job and struggle with making writing – my writing – a daily habit.
