Bio: From the age of nine, I've had a journal by my side, as a friend, a therapist and a treasure. It seems I’m not very good at explaining how I feel or what I think until I write it down. And then, something transforming happens when I read what I have written, as if my hand becomes a magical wand and another world comes pouring out. Books always gratified my sense of wonder. In grade school I was astounded at the concept of a library. I still am. Books bring me balance and peace. They quiet and focus my otherwise multitasking fidgety mind. Like an unstoppable virus I hope to spread my thoughts through written words, inspiring, provoking, and entertaining those that are somehow brought into my part of the universe.
