Grateful for support
Without Emma, who 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 blessed me richly with many generous supporters throughout the process of publishing the posts, and later, transforming them into a book.
Writing my first book
I first experimented with writing as a child, arranging words on a page and discovering 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, and 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 Letters to Emma will always be my first book. 😀
