I was in college for ten years and when I left, I never thought I would return. I barely went out for a decade. I guess I’m a nerd at heart because I found a way to reach people and I went for it with everything I had. I worked for seven years taking twenty-one writing classes, working seven days a week, during every spare second I had to try and write a story powerful enough to reach into readers’ hearts. That was my favorite part. The most difficult part was reliving the part of my life I needed to tap into in order to write this story.
