I was seventeen when I first felt the itch to write. It happened during one of those free periods back in high school, where we were allowed a few free hours to ourselves. I was just sitting when suddenly, I got an idea and I turned to my friend, who sat right behind me, and said, “Let’s write a story.”
He looked at me like I was crazy and went, “Write what, what story?”
With all the excitement in the world, I replied, “A fictional story; with characters and chapters, you know, like a novel!
And then, I began to divulge my plan, which was basically to do the thinking while he did the writing because he had better handwriting (I didn’t own a computer.)
He laughed, thought it was all silly, especially as it was coming out of “nowhere.” Reluctantly, however, he keyed in, and we shared ideas. He rewrote my drafts, but his interest didn’t hold up to the second chapter.
However, with the pleasure of a continuous scratch, I forged on to write what became my first novel and then a second.
That was over a decade ago.
Today, I work as a freelancer, writing articles, copies, screenplays, novels, and short stories of multiple genres for various publications worldwide.
And I am available to work with you, too.

“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.”
―F. Scott Fitzgerald
