When it All Started: the Day I KNEW I Wanted to be a Writer


In 2008, I was driving up Highway 101 headed back to my duty station when a voice said to me, “Look left.”

I immediately obeyed, and as I did, I witnessed high waves crashing into the coast line.  As I marveled at the strength of the Pacific Ocean, I then got the revelation that one day I would write a book and that my protagonist would come to this very location to seek refuge.   As soon as I returned my eyes back to the road, I noticed a sign that read “Refugio State Beach.”  It was then I knew my life had been changed.

Do you remember the day your life-changing moment occurred?
