I had no idea I would ever write books. I grew up in rural Pennsylvania and had trouble reading as a child, but when I discovered writing, specifically storytelling, everything changed. The act of writing planted the seed of a life-long passion and awakened something deep inside me—the need to connect with others through words. I believe that writing is a way of sharing something that comes from us but is also greater than us. (And forever humbling). For me, storytelling has become a form of fellowship.
