I love writing because it allows me to create something and then share it with others.
I love the process of inventing characters, and refining them until they become the character I want them to be to help me convey a story, a feeling, a sub plot etc. I also enjoy describing settings in a rich and detailed manner so the reader feels like he or she is present in that setting-- seeing it, smelling it, feeling it, etc. I am happiest when readers may have (and share with other readers) a vicarious experience through my writing.

I read Harper Lee’s iconic debut novel To Kill a Mockingbird in my freshman high school English class (when I seemingly lacked experience in everything), and I re-read it last summer at the age of forty-eight (after I had studied and practiced law, raised a family, and embarked on a writing career).  Remarkably, at both of those vastly different stages in my life, To Kill a Mockingbirdmoved...
