Thoughts From AuthorHouse Published Author
by Rima Jbara
I don’t know how I wrote these short stories and was able to merge them into a novel at the age of 13 and eventually release it at the age of 14. The incident was stimulating. I still have the awe-inspiring experience every time I write a book. I don’t know if I will still have the same mind frame for writing in the future or not. Becoming a writer was not a choice. It just happened. It was a talent that eventually became a hobby. By the time it was time to choose a profession, it became an addiction. It might sound ridiculous, but it’s the only answer I have.
