I have been a bibliophile for as long as I can remember. When I wasn’t in school or playing sports, I was reading. I began to jot down short stories at an early age and kept then in a drawer. Travelling by subway afforded me time to read. Then I began working and having children and realized my reading had slowed. Why would that be, if it was clearly something I loved to do?
It was a lesson learned, that if something is important for you to do – make the time! It can be done with planning and prioritization. You don’t find time you make it.
Several years ago I made the choice to focus on writing fiction and focus on novels. Brevity may be the soul of wit, but if I see an empty page I need to fill it!
Plus my newly published novel When Killers Collide is featured. Readers can read the opening chapter to see if the story interests them.
So now I read every day and over the decades have collected a large library of books I love. Surely I am blessed.
