I love books, a quiet walk in the woods, the smell of fresh-baked pie crust, Sunday mornings and cake. When I was a kid, I climbed trees and loved to read stories about talking animals. I have a deep love for dogs and believe they are incredibly, empathetic creatures – some might say I love them more than people. I am easily moved to tears by romantic comedies, Jim Croce songs and goodbyes at airports. Writing has always been a part of me and it has never stopped feeling magical.
