I have been writing since I was a child. My love of writing even motivated me to become an English teacher, hoping to impart the joy of literature to my students. My favorite type of reading is one in which I am transported out of my everyday world and into an adventure.
I will read almost anything, but I love the classics, especially John Steinbeck and Hemingway. For fantasy, my favorites are Terry Brooks and Tad Williams, and of course, JRR Tolkien.
