Cathy: I think I’ve always enjoyed writing. I think it was always my career motivation. I went to school for creative writing thinking I would be a fiction novelist or a poet or something. Things change a bit. I read mostly nonfiction now, go figure? Yeah, I just always loved making stories and the written language has always been a fascination of mine. Actually, my parents love telling me this story that I use to write stories before I could actually write. How that was possible was that I use to dictate to my older brother, who would write it down, and then I would add pictures to it and say, “Hey, this is my story!” (laughing)
