Feeding Imagination

"How much better to get wisdom than gold, to choose understanding rather than silver!

-Proverbs 16:16 (NIV)

There's a reason books are almost always better than

their movie counterparts. And as one who struggled to

read, my heart goes out to children who find reading

difficult. There's magic, beauty and hours of enjoyment

within the pages of books but, more importantly, 

that magic engages the mind, develops creativity

and empathy, and expands awareness.

As a writer, I of course love creating stories, but it

goes deeper than that for me. Check out my bio page

for the full story. To keep it short here, just know that

reading did not come easily for me. When it did click, 

worlds of magic opened up and they stole my heart. 

I want to encourage young readers because it's a

tragedy if they can't enjoy a good book. 

Plus, as William Blake once said, "What is now proved

was once only imagined." Reading influences science, 

belief, compassion...I could have an endless list here, 

but I strive to feed the imagination of anyone who

reads my books.
