Writing has always been my heart song, and it all started with a 6 page “book” I illustrated myself when I was about 11.  That blossomed into a 30-some “book series” based off of a My Little Pony farm managed by Beanie Babies.  I’ve always been a dreamer and completely engulfed in fantasy, but I haven’t always written.  After I got my heart broken for the first time, I stopped writing for years.  Ironically enough, it was heartbreak again that drove me back to writing.  Looking back, I can see the steps in my life that led me back to writing.

Vol 3 – 31: The Choice

“I’m no good for you.”

When he said that to me, I wasn’t thinking about living in a shack outside the city, dumpster diving for food, or stealing ibuprophen so our kid didn’t die from fever. I wasn’t thinking about torn jackets, sockless toes, or begging for a few laundromat coins.

I was thinking about how my soul would wither away if we really said good-bye right now.

I choose this lifestyle because I choose him. Every day. I open my eyes and the one poor boy from downtown stirs beside me, turns over, and whispers in my ear.

“You’re the best thing that ever happened to me.”
