where the writers are

Influences

I was greatly influence by my third grade teacher who felt that I had a great flair for writing. My Aunt encouraged me three years ago to use my talent to write my first children's book. I wrote five short stories and put them into one book about a ten year old girl who cannot dance, sing, ice skate and is a total klutz. The stories are about me. I wanted to share my stories with children in order to help them understand that not everyone is an athelete. I played the piano and the violin in Carnegie Hall. I accompanied my sister when she started in shows in school. My mom was my greatest influence when it came to encouraging me to be the best that I could be never judging me for what I could not do but for my successes.
