Friday Night Reads: Carrie Lea Williams
This week I'll be hosting my nineteenth #FriNightReads! It's where I read the first chapter from an indie author, live on my author Facebook page. This Friday I'll be live-reading from Carrie Lea William's The Swan and the Rose. It's an enchanting tale about how beauty is more than skin deep. Now, here's more from this week's indie author...
How did you first start writing?
I started writing first because my father would write stories just for me, and when my elementary school held a writing contest, my father encouraged me to enter the contest. I won, and my story was published in the local newspaper in Poplar Bluff, MO; after that, I was hooked.
Why do you love it?
I love writing because it's a way to escape from reality and create any type of world or adventure you want.
More on Carrie:
