Good books sustain me, but the best books have changed me.
I’m a daughter, sister, friend, lover, wife, mother, grandmother, cat lady and somebody’s favorite crazy auntie (I hope). All these labels define me by my relationship to others. I am also a reader and, by extension, a lover of words and writing; yet another defining relationship. As with all love affairs, the time I spend with the object of my desire, good books, sustains me—but the best ones I’ve experienced have changed me in profound ways. To think that I might someday be a catalyst for change humbles me.
I am a writer, and my story is ever changing.
