When my elementary school teacher in a small town in Georgia began reading our class Great Expectations, I had no idea it was the beginning of a long, lovely relationship with stories. I’ve since exchanged warm summers and southern hospitality for frozen winters and a polished professionalism in Sweden, but I’ve taken my love for writing with me.
The days of thirty children huddled together, sometimes holding hands, wondering what would happen to Pip are over — my love affair with books isn’t. I’ve written, and published, poetry, short stories, articles, and a novel.
I have no plans to stop anytime soon.
