THOUGHTS

A great writer is an engaged one.

I learned how to read before I learned how to write. My favorite childhood memory is sitting on my bed with my grandfather who raised me, and we’d take turns in reading each sentence on the page of a book.

He would encourage me to sound it out with words I had trouble pronouncing and then he would explain what words meant if I didn’t know their meaning.
