Growing up...

I grew up in the country, in a small town north of New York City.  My father was a writer and some of my earliest memories are of hearing the tap, tap, tap of his typewriter keys and then peeking into his office to watch him at work.

We had lots of books in our house and I loved to read.  I also loved animals.  My sister and I had all kinds of pets.  Dogs and cats, birds, hamsters, rabbits, and even a goat. 

Back then, I wanted to be a veterinarian or a zookeeper when I grew up.  Later, I thought I’d like to be an artist or an actress.

I didn’t want to be a writer.
