There are so many reasons why I write. I love stories. I especially love stories with a deeper meaning, fiction with a bigger message or purpose. I have spent years helping people, one person at a time, and I still do that. I think writing fiction that includes authentic scenes in psychotherapy can convey some of the encouragement, hope and compassion that clients experience in the therapy room. I heard such sentiments expressed by early readers of drafts of The Language of Dreams, and I found it incredibly fulfilling. There are so many reasons to write, spreading caring and encouragement being among them for me. That being said, I better get back to writing my sequel.
