Teaching

When I was ten years old, my mother appointed me to be her junior editor. I didn’t particularly like my job, but God had a plan.

After I turned 40, I did something I never thought I’d do. I started writing.

A few years later, someone asked me to teach Writing with Heart at a conference.
