    I’ve wanted to be a writer for most of my life. In elementary school, I had a lot of trouble getting my schoolwork done during class because I’d spend so much time dreaming up stories in my head. I’d often fail to complete homework because I’d sneak in play with action figures when I was supposed to be concentrating on math or social studies. The only work I never had trouble finishing were the rare assignments to write stories. By fourth grade, I knew I wanted to write stories for a living.

    However, one does not, in general, begin a lucrative writing career in the fourth grade.

  3. So often, a visit to a bookshop has cheered me and reminded me that there are good things in the world.

    Yessssss.

    There is no doubt that I will have one of these in my house some day.

    I became a writer for three reasons.  1.  I love to tell stories.  2.  I wanted to work at home.  3.  I want to live in a house with secret passages.  Some day, my secret passage dream will come true.
