A pen is to me as a beak is to a hen.
J. R. R. Tolkien


For Love of the Written Word

"A blank piece of paper is God’s way of telling us how hard it is to be God." – Sidney Sheldon

What the human mind is able to image drives the stories on a written page.  

From the Desk of Toya Wilson

Writing has been my passion from an early age when I realized how much I enjoyed the experience of a good book and that I had a few stories of my own to tell. I obtained my English degree and taught Middle School Language Arts for a few years before I actively began my pursuit of the joy that occurs when the words on paper come together to form an amazing adventure. I enjoy weaving stories that will allow children to use their imaginations and explore new people, places and ideas.
I am like so many others who talk about how much I love to write and how I can always be found with a book in one hand and a pen in the other.  Yet, still, day in and day out, I continue to go to my job, sitting behind a desk, letting the cares of the world consume me, dreaming of the day when it will happen for me.  
I have learned that it's okay to dream but there comes a time when you have to move, one step at a time.
