One of my earliest memories is from when I was about three years old. I was sitting at our old, well-used kitchen table with a purple crayon grasped firmly in my fist. My hair fell in front of my eyes, creating a red curtain for me to peer out and watch my story unfold through the berry-colored scribbles across the yellow legal pad my parents gave me to write on. Although my writing was nonsensical and impossible to decipher, I was hooked. I decided right there that I was going to be a writer.
Fast forward a little less than two decades later, I was graduating with my BA in Journalism from the University of Oklahoma. Following my college career (at which I wrote for both the school's publications because I simply couldn't be content with just one), I moved back to Dallas and began my corporate career.
To me, writing is both work and relaxation. Words are simply magical—and I'd love to share a little of that magic with you.
