Some people just know they're meant to be writers.
I am not one of them.
Which is a bit odd, because I love writing, in many, many forms.
But like many teens, I got discouraged just when I should have been coming into my own. And thus, if someone had told me the day I graduated from college that I'd one day be a novelist, I would have laughed. And laughed some more.
So I'm quite pleased to be proven wrong while hanging out with my great classmates and fellow authors of fiction and nonfiction, including Robbie Kellman Baxter, with whom I organized a wonderful books 'n' shmooze reception at our 25th Harvard Reunion.
