I've had a love of reading and writer for most of my life. I studied journalism at Humber College in Toronto, thinking this is where my writing interest would lead. Instead of newspapers, TV or radio, I tried a stint at Harlequin Romance, as a proofreader, which was a blast, but eventually the lack of upward mobility, along with a distinct reduction of my visual acuity (from staring at screens all day long), told me it was time to call it a day. Eventually, I wrote short informational and educational pieces for a variety of educational publishers in South Korea. Currently, I am a teacher in Surrey, BC, Canada, and I love it. But I also love writing and this is the beginning of a real writing career, and not just wishful thinking.
