I became a writer no more than a woman becomes an instinctual mother, no more than a larva becomes a wanderlust butterfly. I am a writer because it is an inevitable extension of my being. Some people decide to be writers because they want to write; I was never given the option.

I write so that my wild testimonies, the love, the loss, the pain will have a vehicle out of my frayed soul into the world where they can cement themselves into the culture and psyche of a hungry people who can share in the emotional release that comes when we shed our superficial robes and share with one another, spiritually free in creativity, understanding and love.
I am a writer because, like you, like all, I have a story to tell.
