Writing is my passion. As a young girl, being a serious introvert, I would spend a lot of time curled up with a pen and paper (no… not a laptop) writing poetry. I thought it was the coolest thing to put words together that made sense and would also rhyme. (That’s when I was really young and thought that poetry had to rhyme. Who knew?)
Back then, becoming an author was not a thought that ever crossed my mind. It wasn’t even part of my dream. It wouldn’t be until decades later, when computers, the internet, Amazon, and the like would make it possible for ordinary people like me to publish their own books. I took a bunch of courses and still couldn’t find everything I needed. So, with some trial, error, and real research, I figured it out
After discovering that it wasn’t difficult at all, I got this burning desire, almost an urgency to shout out to everybody who wanted to write and publish their book that it really could be done. That’s what started my journey. I held a few workshops, taught a few classes, and almost by accident, found myself right in the middle of something that filled my cup. I found my purpose.
Since that first workshop many, many moons ago, I’ve spent my time helping people with all different aspects of writing, publishing, and branding. Now, I’ve created something that allows me to serve in a bigger way, while I’m living my dream, fulfilling my purpose, and helping others fulfill theirs.
