I learned to read at an early age and devoured every piece of writing I could get my hands on—cereal boxes, dictionaries, Ernest Hemingway, the entire Bible, Moby Dick, my mother’s psychology textbooks…
She stopped encouraging me to read, after that last one.
But at that point, I was nine years old, and the damage had already been done: I’d developed a fondness for identifying gaps between what people say and what they intended to say.
Bridging this gap (between what is said and what is intended) is what I do as an editor.
My primary theme as an author is, “Everyone’s crazy somehow; some people just hide it better than others.”
May you have a most excellent week!
