I’ve been writing incessantly as long as I’ve been able: poetry, songs, and stories by age 6, a complete novel (and many, many uncompleted) as a preteen, seriously writing music at 14. In college I briefly studied composition, and have continued to write stories and music that serve as platforms for my voice as a singer and actor.
