How long have you been writing?

I have been writing for five years now.

No, I started out by writing poems. I won 1st place in a poetry contest sponsored by my local library. I later became very active in my church’s writing group. I had several poems published in the church’s journal.

What drives and motivates you?

I am driven by the desire to write quality books that promote the study of a foreign language. I am motivated when I get positive feedbacks from parents about my first trilingual book.

What advice do you have for new writers?

Never give up on your dreams to become a writer. Read as much as you can in the genre you want to write in.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I will be retired from teaching and I will be able to write fulltime.
