Reasons I Write Books


I was asked by a publisher once, what was the reason that I came to be an author. The simple and plain truth is I love to write stories. I’ve always had an active imagination; love art, creating something, anything; creating stories that evoke the imagination. I hope my stories inspire, edify, and encourage others in a way that they may want to spread around that joy they received, from reading a good book.

There is no limit what you can do, where you can go, or who you can become in a book. You can be a teacher, doctor or even a princesss in a book. You can travel to new heights, swim in the ocean with dolpins, or fly high in the sky as a superhero. You can fight villains or rescue a damsel in distress.

Most writers choose the writing profession merely because of their need to write things on paper. Each book started from an author writing one word at a time on paper. Some writers write because they want to leave behind a part of themselves. after they have passed on. Some writers write to educate or instruct others about something. There are so many reasons a writer writes but writing is an art in itself. You can create new worlds, design masterpieces from words on paper, and leave behind a legacy of history to the next generation. I write to help someone to become a better person.  Hopefully my words will instill something in them that will help them have good morals, compassion and love for others.  Stories can inspire and edify, but sadly there are some that don’t.  Hope you enjoy my words and I encourage you to show that love, compassion and decency to someone else.  Words we say to someone, and things we do for someone can truly change peoples lives. They will remember that person for years that truly inspired them.

In the faces of men and women I see God and in my own face in the glass, I find letters from God dropt in the street, and every one is signed by God’s name, and I leave them where they are, for I know that wheresoever I go others will punctually come for ever and ever. — Walt Whitman
