I've read for as long as I've known how to read. My parents don't really read themselves, but they instilled the concept of "bedtime story" in me from a very early age. When I was able to read myself, I did, and I did to excess. I would read practically everything put in front of me.
I guess I was around seven or eight, possibly even younger, when I realised that there was always a person behind those stories, and that gave me the idea that that would be an awesome job to have. I've wanted to write for as long as I am able to remember.
I suppose my parents would have read my very early stuff, although there was a girl in primary school with whom I collaborated on a couple of stories, I seem to remember.
