My name is I-Lanaa Twine. I am a 27 year old nurse and mother of one living in upstate New York! For as long as I can remember, the written word has played an essential role in my life. I can fondly recall many a night spent hidden beneath the covers, flashlight in one hand and a tantalizing book in the other. As a child, I read anything and everything I could get my hands on. The world around me would seemingly fade away as long as I had a good book between my fingertips.
Today, not much has changed. I still love creativity and imagination. I think what I love the most about literature is how powerful it is. It can enlighten. It can inspire hope. In my opinion, the right book in the right hands can change the world! I guess that is one of the many reasons I wanted to become an author. It gives me the opportunity to give and receive the joy that writing brings to this world. And that makes me feel pretty lucky! Happy Reading and Writing…and Everything In Between.
