When I was a little girl, my Mother always told me “words are your friends.” I doubt she had any idea what adventures and opportunities those words of encouragement would open for me. When I found my voice as a writer I finally understood what she meant! I get lost in my stories, my character’s world, and their perspective on life. My writing has made me a better actress. You can’t tell someone else’s story without having empathy for that person. You can’t create an honest, fully dimensional character without understanding them, looking at what happened to them at five or ten years old that changed their point of view.
