Storytelling shaped my life. My grandmother was my first storyteller. I could sit for hours listening to her recount her childhood as an orphan. Over time she taught me to write. We exchanged letters.
I copied her techniques and styles. From both those mediums I gained a love of the human story.
In the past decade I have stepped out into the world of writing. Through work on books and articles, I have reaffirmed the human need for stories. My desire is to inspire others to share their stories.
We each have one. They need to be told.
