One of my favorite hobbies is to read. I usually can judge a book by it’s cover despite the saying otherwise. For me the illustration is as important as the book. It must tell it’s own story. My love of reading is what inspired my second favorite hobby…writing. I love to tell a story but the reason I write is bigger than the story. Reading, is a way to escape life’s anxieties and stresses, but writing, is the way to face life head on. It’s the way I fight back. It’s the way I survive.
