Ever since grade school I have been a writer. When I was eight years old, I wrote plays and made my brother and the neighborhood kids act them out, which my brother never appreciated. At first, I wanted to be a screen writer. My parents even bought me a book to learn how to write movies. But then the angst of my teenage years introduced me to poetry. I was the loner in high school who wrote the dark poems that no one understood. My English teacher said they were too dark, but I still enjoy writing them. Although I always loved writing, I never considered writing novels until my thirties.
Ten years ago, I decided to give novel writing a try. I had a friend who was self-publishing novels and it piqued my interest. I wrote a few chapters of a romance novel, and shared it with some friends only to receive lackluster results.
