Hi Heather and thanks for stopping by My Year of Getting Published.
1. Did you always want to be a writer ? How did you get started writing?
I was an avid reader as a child and always dreamt of being a writer – I thought how fabulous it would be to give such joy as I had from book. However it wasn’t until I was in my fifties that I had the time and confidence to give a try – after all when you are fifty-plus surely it’s time to do what you really want to do.
