Ever since I was young, I loved to write. While my friends were reading books, I was creating short stories and writing very long letters. This passion has never left me. As a young teenager, I started to write in a private diary.  By the time I was 18, I had a shelf full of diaries in my room.  Now as an adult, I refer to my diaries as journals. To date, I have written in over 106 journals filled with daily notes, stories, and events. These journals are considered the history books of my family and life. Whenever there’s a question about a particular event, I have the privilege to go to the stacks of the journals and pick out the precise facts of that day and time.

As a writer, I’ve always dreamed about becoming an author. My dream finally came true with the publication of my children’s book, The Black Velvet Jacket. My advice is to never give up on your dreams. In time, they will come true.

Hope is the springboard to all dreams coming true.  Always have hope!
