I knew nothing about writing other than I wanted to write books, novels in particular. My first step in my journey actually took place as a child. I liked to daydream and I had a good imagination.

You’re thinking I’m not interested in a business. I just want to write and sell books. But surprise, that is a business! While writing can certainly be fun, it is for me, it can also be profitable.
