One of those questions authors get asked regularly is when we knew we were meant to be writers. I was asked this recently and remembered that I once blogged on this topic in the Dark Ages of the internet–over ten years ago in June 2006. I decided to look that blog up and see what has changed. My answer hasn't, but the publishing world has.
Some knew they were born to write from their earliest days. I am not one of those. The bald fact is that I knew I was a writer when I was offered a contract for my first book. Boringly mundane, no? Yet it’s the truth.
