Did you have a teacher who encouraged you to write?
Karen Hukari has been an inspiration far longer than she realizes. She just retired after nearly 40 years in the classroom and the world is a little worse off without her teaching kids. She was my AP Literature teacher and I was a math/science guy who took English just so I could get through it. But ‘Huks’ lit a fire in me. She instilled in me a love, no, an obsession with reading, and a love of writing that I only discovered well into adulthood. She taught me how to look for DH Lawrence’s ‘Man Alive’ and showed me how to hold writers to high standards. Now that I am writing professionally, she always gets one of my earliest copies of my new books and she is in my heart and in my head every time I sit down to write.
