"The Weaver"

"Words, written or spoken, have power."

What keeps me grounded and motivated as a writer?
Having a mission and a vision for my work. I understand that my words,
spoken or written, have power. I am passionate about writing stories that
touch the heart, inspire, and entertain the reader.
