Day 2: Crossing Oceans’ Launch Week and a Mother’s Day Contest

EXCERPT FROM TITLETRAKK.COM:

Were books a big part of your life growing up? If so, what books would you say influenced you most as a child?

Oh my yes! I always had my nose in a book. My parents used to have to force me outside to play. The world inside books was just so much more interesting than my life. I loved fairy tales above all when I was young, then as I grew a little, I moved on to Hardy Boys and A Wrinkle in Time, and then (cringe I know) V.C. Andrews and eventually Stephen King. Oh yeah, I also loved to read the medical dictionary. I guess looking back, I was destined to be a writer/nurse.

Did you always have the inclination to write, or did that desire come later in life?

I knew writing came easier for me than most. In high school, everyone would cringe to get an essay question, while I cheered. It wasn’t until I was grown and a nurse that I thought about giving writing a try. I don’t recall what sparked the idea I might try it. I just knew I needed to make some money while staying home to raise my baby. I thought writing would be a quick and easy way to make some cash. Ha!

As someone who came from a broken home, do you think that played any part in your choosing writing? Did you perhaps find it cathartic or an escape?
