How I Got Started

When I was maybe 5 or 6, I followed my two big sisters along the back of the attic and up three rough wooden steps. They unhooked the latch on the oddly shaped door and we crawled onto the small piece of plywood that was laid on the rafters.

Rows and rows of prickly pink insulation surrounded the three of us. If I stepped there, I would fall through the ceiling of the room below and my sisters would never let me in the attic with them again. They took out their pens and I took out my pencil and we began to write our books.
