  4. Who’s the first writer who truly inspired you to become a writer?

  4. I don’t really have an answer for that one – I have been a writer for as long as I can remember. I started with poetry in first grade, and continued from there. My favorite authors are the ones that move me, make me think, or make me laugh, or all of the above – Madeleine L’Engle, Richard Bach, Douglas Adams
