Why I Write?

June 27, 2021

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.
