Many, many years ago, my only desire was to be a lawyer like my grandfather, whom I do not remember. Life, however, had other plans for me, and after a messy divorce, some natural disasters, and other complications, I finished my bachelor's degree in English Education. I continued my education, earning my Master's degree in English. From there, I taught public school for over five years.
Then I took the plunge. I love to write. It purges the poisons of my soul. I believe that a true writer has inherent talent, and yet, so many acquired skills can polish that talent. In acquiring those necessary skills, my business took its own turn. I started out writing resumes, letters, sales pitches, and blogs, and before I knew it, I was editing manuscripts. And now, authors wait for over a year, just to have me edit their manuscripts. Life definitely has a funny way of placing you exactly where you should be.
It's funny how the world seems to choose your fate for you, but perhaps the fates have a greater knowledge of the universe than I. Though I am not a lawyer as I had originally planned to be, I am good at what I do. I love it, and I help change people's lives.
