Did you always know you wanted to be an author? If not, what did you want to be instead?
I have always been a writer, but it wasn't until the last few years that I committed to the idea of being an author. I went to college to become a teacher, and that was my job for fourteen years--until I had a child. I LOVED teaching and miss it so much, but once my son was born, I chose to stay home with him and use the time to work on my writing.
