Lenka's List had the pleasure to publish this interview on: May 11th, 2017
I have been writing fiction since I was seven-years-old. There were several events that caused me to start writing. One reason I started writing was that when I was growing up in the mid-90s, although video games were becoming popular, I did not own any. Instead, when I was alone I would make up stories using all my action figures. This lead to me beginning to enjoy the art of crafting stories. The second reason that I became inspired to start writing was a novel I read, "The Choice" by Og Mandino. The novel is about the struggle and victory story of a writer. The catalyst for me to transition to writing was an assignment my 2nd Grade teacher gave me in which I discovered my passion for writing.
