My obsession with writing began with poetry in grade school. I cherished my hardcover copy of The Complete Poems of Winnie-the-Pooh with its beautifully illustrated dust jacket. All of my favorite characters danced across the pages pulling me into the magic of the musical words. And so I decided to try my own hand at the art of Poetry.

I decided very early that I wanted to write. But I didn't think of it as a career. I didn't even think of it as a profession It was the most exciting thing, the most powerful thing, the most wonderful thing to do with my life. And I didn't question if I should - I just kept sharpening the pencils!
