I got my first positive review when I was eight and my third-grade teacher shivered at a story I wrote about a ghost in a graveyard. I wrote my first book at thirteen and sent it off to a literary publisher, who probably took one look at the yellow typing paper and white correction fluid and deduced the age of the author. His remarks were consequently very kind, and gave me the courage to keep writing.
Twenty five years, seven manuscripts and zillions of rejection letters later, I sold my masters thesis to Harlequin and fulfilled my lifelong dream of being a published writer.
