From a young age, imagination and creativity has always been a great passion of mine – although I wasn’t able to write properly until I started school, I was a very dedicated reader and had always loved being a story teller.

I officially started writing my own stories when I was about eleven or twelve years old. By that time, I still had no idea what I wanted to be in life, nor did I know what I wanted to do in life. But what always drove me to keep going with my writing was seeing how much my writing improved over time, and how all my ideas were now forming themselves outside of my mind.

It was until I reached around seventeen years old that I had finally realised the path I wanted to follow: I wanted to be a writer. So this is what I’ve started, and this is the dream I want to continue. I don’t want to be the next J. K. Rowling – in fact I very much doubt that I will be anything like her! – but what I do believe is that I want to write because that’s how I express myself. It is who I am.

So you want to know what is my key to being so passionate about being a writer? Its because I believe in what I do, and I will hold to that for as long as I keep writing.

Thank you for reading.
