Because it's what I do
Ever since early hominids gathered around the fire, telling tales of bravery and monsters, storytelling has been a vital aspect of our existence. It's part of what makes us human. Writing adds permanence to these stories. Yes, there are only so many themes, a limited number of concepts for any story. But, oh, the variations!
From early (embarrassing) sci-fi stories I wrote in my youth, to poetry in my teens and twenties, to writing for business in my adulthood, to my first novel, pulling words from my imagination, and placing them in a compelling (I hope) order is what I do.
