Though I have always been writing in one way or another, I never considered actually becoming a writer. I always thought that career path was reserved for only the really smart people. At 23 I completed my first novel, and knew I wanted to write for the rest of my life. Completing my first novel was, and still is one of the best accomplishments of my life.
Today I can proudly say that I'm an indie author, and that I've published the above mentioned book. It has been a dream come true.
Now . . . to keep on writing more books:)
