“I have always loved reading and books. When I was younger, I would look at books and marvel at how a person could fill all of those pages with ideas and words all by themselves. Much to my delight, I later learned that I had a knack for writing, and that filling pages could be enjoyable – and sometimes even effortless.”
– Denise Jacobs
