What's Your Story?

 

When I was a kid, I had an imaginary friend. Her name was Kellen and she had auburn hair and freckles. She wore a patchwork brown dress and brown Mary Janes.

 

Come to think of it, she was very brown, but she went with me everywhere.

 

I suppose it’s unacceptable to have imaginary friends once one becomes an adult. That’s why I decided to become a writer. To give myself creative license to dream up all kinds of imaginary friends…and then, to tell their stories.

 

I’ve always been a person with a pure love for creating characters and bringing them to life. In high school and college, I turned to the stage. Later, it was scrapbooking. Now, it’s fiction.

 

Funny how it all comes together, no?

 

See, I believe we all have a story to tell. We all have stories that make us laugh or shed a tear. We may even have that one that stops the heart. And I suppose that’s why I write…to capture those stories. To give them a place to breathe. To remember how it is that I got here in the first place.

 

I learn so much more when I’m paying attention.

 

I am a storyteller... 

 

…With a pure love for the written word, the visual image, the moment a character becomes real. And I have a feeling, I’ll be telling stories for the rest of my life.
