Tell us a little bit about yourself
When I was 10 years old, on the day of my Confirmation, the Bishop came to our church to administer the sacrament. He said he’d received letters from all the 5th graders in the province and one letter in particular had caught his attention. That letter was mine. And he read it. Out loud. To the entire congregation. Naturally, all I wanted to do was hide under the pew and take my bright red cheeks with me. My mother’s pride, however, beamed so bright that she looked as though she’d been touched by God’s very hand and it was quite clear who, in that church, had written that letter. For the life of me, I don’t remember what my 10-year-old self had to say that was so compelling. What I do remember, however, is hearing my mother say on multiple occasions from that moment on: “Maybe you should become a writer.”
25 years and many random jobs later, I am ready to give this writing lark some wings.
