Grateful for support

Without Emma, who first encouraged me to write, and all the reading friends who gave such wonderful feedback on the original six blog posts, I would never have begun this project.

Writing can be a lonely pursuit. But God has blessed me richly with many generous supporters. Through their unfailing encouragement, I’ve been able to persevere throughout the process, first when publishing the posts and then while transforming the posts into the book.

Writing my first book

I first experimented with writing as a child, arranging words on a page to discover what words could do. I guess it was a form of play.

But I was soon hooked on the power of words and the worlds they could create. So it wasn’t long before I wanted to become a writer.

I’ve written many different things since then, some of them published. But until now, becoming the author of a published book has seemed a bit unreal, even though I’ve held the hard copy in my hands!

Now that the official launch is only days away though, I feel less like I’m pretending and more like I’m reaching the end point of a long journey. And there’s one thing for sure: Letters to Emma will always be my first book.
