Nayab asked Diane Chamberlain:

When did you realize that you wanted to express your creativity and knowledge through writing? Was it encouraged by others? What creative expressions (e.g. art, dance, media, music) have you tried in the past, present or future to express your creativity through?

Diane Chamberlain Hi Nayab,
I've always made up stories from the time I was very small, but didn't seriously start writing until I was thirty-one and working as a hospital social worker. I was bitten by the writing bug then and never looked back. My parents encouraged any form of creativity I wanted to pursue, but only writing really stuck. I wish I could play the piano or another instrument, but I am hopeless, so writing it is!
