I was born in a small ranching and mining community called Jordan Valley Oregon, a place highly populated by sagebrush and cows rather than people. In a small town, there are limitations in terms of activities you can do or enjoy. It is in isolated places such as these that an imagination can roam freely. And mine certainly did.
People often ask me when was the first moment I fell in love with writing. Though my memory cannot produce a specific moment, the passion for it, I believe, has always been a significant part of who I am. I have always had a great love for stories whether it was found in the pages of a book, the words of a speaker, or images on a movie screen. The ability to find inspiration is never hindered by a daring imagination.
