About This Author

I never felt like a "born" writer as some do, but I do enjoy the English language and I enjoy writing from my heart, from circumstances, from inspiration, from the world around me and from history. I come from a family of creative persons and I myself would be the least likely of them to write as I am the least creative to the outside world. I have always enjoyed reading and have found myself compelled to write more and to feel more of what I write. I have been inspired and I hope to inspire others.
