I began writing in 2011 after being in the hospital and realizing I wouldn't be able to dance again for what would likely be a long time (I was right, as I'm just returning to dance this December. Click here for details on upcoming dance events). I had decided to write about characters who have similar interests and goals as mine in hopes of continuing my mission of empowering women, I would just attempt to do it through fictional characters rather than through physical interaction and dance.
Many years later, that one novel has turned into a series of four (which I'm still working on, having lost several years due to being too sick to even sit at my laptop for long). I do hope to be able to get back to writing regularly before the end of this year. I miss my characters, they began to feel like friends of mine when I was writing everyday…once published, I hope they someday feel like friends to you, as well!
