I wrote my first song at age 4. Poetry & stories soon followed. Tragically, a decade's worth of work was lost & I shut that part of myself away for years. But through the encouragement of wonderful people, & the positive reinforcement that came with winning a national contest, I began to write again. Currently, I write a monthly column for the ChristianOnlineMagazine.com, released my first book, "Joy Through the Storm" in 2010 & am pleased to announce the release of "Storm Stories Devotionals". Thanks to WDC and the PDG, I am stretching myself, learning, & recapturing the joy that writing first brought to my life.
