As a student at Niagara Falls High School in Niagara Falls, Ont., I was a part of an exclusive club of kids that had access to a free library in the auditorium.
As a result, I enjoyed learning from the very best authors in the field, as well as the teachers and fellow students.
This was an opportunity to learn from my peers as well.
I learned how to be a good reader and how to read a novel without being distracted by the pageantry of the library.
As I entered my junior year, I decided to take the plunge into fiction writing and I quickly fell in love with it.
I have now written and published my first novel, a sci-fi thriller set in the far future.
As an avid reader, I also discovered a whole host of other new genres, such as horror, romance, and suspense, that I have used to my advantage.
I now find myself on a path to writing an entire book on my own.
As the years have passed, I have become more and more comfortable writing my own short stories, and I am now working on an ongoing novel about a young man with a rare disease.
As you can see, it has been a busy year and I’m proud to say that I’ve found my niche.
