I read a lot as a tween. I would go to the Brooklyn Public Library and check out V.C Andrews mystery novels and other YA books with my mom as a tween. I’m a New York City native.

One of the things I love about public libraries is the stacks of books. I also really enjoy reading. I read about a book a month. I’ve read some good books. I like reading the genre of memoir also. I know reading opens a whole new world to a child. I have a dream of publishing my own children’s books. I was told I had a gift with literacy by my oldest half sister Alison who is a literacy coach. She works for the board of education in NYC and she used to work as an elementary school teacher. I think the gift comes from my BA in English and Creative Writing but I didn’t get high enough grades to my dismay. I am doing well on difficult assignments and it makes me really happy. I have two assignments to finish my course with The Institute of Children’s Literature. I am really excited and I am going to take my time and finish strong. I was informed that the last lesson gives me a chance to revise an earlier assignment I wrote in the beginning or the course. I will take that opportunity.
