Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

I would spend my free hours between library visits with my nose buried in a book, and at night, if it was past my bedtime, burrowed under the covers with a flashlight, reading.  It’s no wonder I decided at an early age that I wanted to become a writer.  To me, books were magic, and I wanted to be part o that magic.
