I began writing because I had something to say, I kept having flashes in my head that needed to be expressed so I started the work. I began writing in March and every few chapters I would go back and re-read and re-write. I've read the entire book four times, but parts of it as many as eight or ten. I am not now, nor have I ever been an english major; some of my grammar is horrific, and without spell check I would sound like a blithering idiot, but I know I have a good story. I'm so certain of that fact that once I finished the first novel I took a week off and began working on a part 2.
