I would spend my downtime in class on a brown bean back writing in my composition book. Back then the characters were my friends and classmates.

I didn't get back into writing until the eighth grade, which was two years later. I was moved up from 6th to 7th during the middle of the school year (this was due in part because my mother felt I wasn't ready and made me take two years of kindergarten). Anyway, the middle school that I went to (at the time) was a bit rowdy and the teachers had a hard time getting lessons across. I'm not sure what started it but I asked my english teacher if I could write stories for a grade and she said yes. In retrospect, I wish I had learned more while in middle school, but I was happy to be writing. I was given a word processor to do my work on (which I also still have, the writings, not the word processor). I created a series, which in turn helped me to create the Phoenix Element series.

Writing back then was a way for me to escape my situation and gave me something constructive to do.

I wrote a little bit in high school but I was too busy with the swim team, drama club, and other activities. Did did write often during the summer, when I wasn't at work.

Fully out of high school and a few years later, I joined a message board. They had a roleplaying forum that I took part of, which also helped shape my current series.

I was writing off and on but nothing serious. It wasn't until I was at Cape Canaveral for the final shuttle launch for Discovery. I was part of the NASA tweet-up, a group picked from Twitter to watch the launch at the countdown clock and to go to areas where the public doesn't normally go. I was standing in the Saturn V center when they were closed and it hit me...I should start writing again. At that point, I wanted to write for myself. I guess being around so much history and wonder, it kickstarted something in me.

Not long after I told myself to write for other people and not just for myself. That I should try to get it published. Which did happen and I am not stopping there. I know I have a lot to learn and hopefully I can improve my craft the more that I write.(less)
