I've enjoyed storytelling for as long as I can remember.
My grade 4 teacher, Mrs. Voy, fanned the flames with a class newspaper and a book-making project that produced real, bound books.
My grade 8 teacher, Mr. McLean, encouraged me to keep writing. At my father's funeral many years later, his question: "What are you doing with your writing?" sparked a revival of creativity in my life.
For many years, my writing only produced essays for school or reports for work. Those times are past.
Now, I write whenever, wherever and whatever I can!
