My favorite book as a child was an educational book titled I Want to Be a Reporter. It was about the job of a reporter and described the skills needed to tell stories in writing. I asked my mom to read it to me every night. Since discovering that book, I have loved the idea of writing for a living. Now I get to write about all kinds of topics . . . from the life of one of the greatest scientists of all time, Stephen Hawking, to the ancient Aztec civilization. I have been writing and editing for more than ten years, for all grade levels.
