When I was a young girl, growing up in a town where there were only two streets, I never thought I d become a writer But I was an avid reader who kept winning prizes for writing And the time came when I found that I had lots to write about That my own life was as full of stories as those other people shared with me Also, that writing was a kind of therapy that gave meaning to my existence.
