I grew up in a small town, aptly named Townville. It’s one of those towns that if you blink as you drive through, you missed it. There are more cows than people. I lived a stones throw from my grandmother, great uncle and an aunt. Being the middle child, I enjoy my own company. I began writing stories about my friends and I when I was 13. Within my stories, I escaped my small town and lived out one crazy adventure after another. As the years past my stories got bigger and more outlandish. Being a private person, I was hesitant to share them with anyone, except my small group of friends. Eventually, I shared them with my mother. I knew if I could make her cry, I had a good story. There came a point where I stopped sharing them with anyone. With encouragement from a special friend, I took a chance and entered a story in a contest with Words Matter Publishing. I won! My first book, Spellbound, will be out this month.
