I have loved story-telling and story-reading for as long as I can remember.
Back when I was little, and a really fascinating tale had captured me, I would run home from school and hurry through lunch as fast as possible because I couldn't wait to find out how the adventure went on. Some of my best friends as a child were the characters that lived on the dog-eared pages of books. I would go on journeys with them until late into night, snuggled up in a blanket, careful to hide the shine of a little flashlight given to me by my grandmother, a great encourager of secret midnight reading.
Today, I make up my own characters, but I treat them like the best friends I cherished in childhood. I'm glad to have found people who care for them and believe in them. I love sharing their happiness and tears and thrills with you.
