I spent years being afraid to write — afraid of rejection; afraid I wasn’t good enough. Then in 1995 I fell and broke my ankle and spent 8 weeks recovering from surgery while lying on my sister’s couch. Trying to deal with the pain and fear caused me to start writing to cope.

Now it’s 2013 and I say: “Bring it on! Happy New Year to us all!
