Why do I write?
I write because I can’t help myself.
The world is big and interesting and there are so many stories to tell. I’ve always been interested in the people around me.
It’s the why that is a powerful magnet for me.
My mother would tell me that was my favorite word when I first learned how to talk, and how I refused to give it up.
Why? Why? But why?
She grew tired of my questions and bought me an encyclopedia set instead.
As a journalist, the why drives my work. I listen and soon find myself thinking, “I need to write about this.”
There is more outside of my work that needs writing, too.
That is what drove me to create this website, to capture and share all the rest. I hope you’ll check in with me when you are curious and interested in finding out why.
