Last night, as I searched through some old notes to find my list of surnames for a project I'm currently working on, I came across something I wrote in my journal several years ago. Back before I ever published my first book. It still remains true, and I thought I'd share it with y'all.
"With all the chaos of everyday life, we all need some form of escape. Mine, like many people I know, is reading. Sometimes, it's just nice to curl up with a good book and forget the craziness for a while. I don't know how many times I've been reading a book by one of my favorite authors, and got an emotional release that I didn't even realize I needed. I would love it if my books provided that for even one person. I want my stories to be someone's escape."
I hope this stays my goal for as long as I am able to write. And I hope that is for many, many years to come.
