Tenderness

frying up eggs and bacon for breakfast!

What are some causes you care about? 

A cause that is dear to my heart is organ and tissue donation. My father died unexpectedly when I was 19, and saved and improved the lives of many other people through his gift of organ donation. I always encourage my family and friends to consider registering to be an organ donor- you can register online nowadays very easily.

If you could bring one book with you on a deserted island what would it be?

 My desert island book is The Orenda by Joseph Boyden


What advice would you give potential writers/entrants to this contest? 

Enjoy the writing process! Sit, think, reflect and sip tea. Let your memories and reflections flow through you naturally. Your story is already amazing; because it is yours!
