Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved books and loved words. I love the way books and the written word can reach out beyond the page, and touch another human being. Now, in the twenty-first century, much of our reading has been transferred to the computer. The truth still applies, though. Writing still reaches out to another human being. Reading still brings us together.
For over seven years, I taught reading and writing as a teacher in the classroom. I loved doing that. Now, I feel writing is a form of teaching, too.
For more about the writing journey, you might also want to read the article I wrote called, "Hope is Required for Writing." I talk about the courage that a person needs to keep writing, in spite of fear and doubt.
