Open Quote
I initially chose English because of my love for books. I was a reader long before I was a writer and, though I didn't much care for writing when I began, I could not resist a good story. […] They always say that the chances of becoming a professional writer and doing what you love are slim to none. They were wrong, and my experience at CSUB showed me that. Close Quote
