I won. The 31st Writers of the Future Golden Pen Award.
For me, it’s a validation that I wrote a good story that people liked; and a confirmation that as a writer, I am on my true path.
Winning this award is not the end of the road, but a milepost along the way. With great teachers and mentors to help me develop the tools I need to build my craft, and a tribe of cherished fellow writers to help me find my way, I can’t wait to see what the future brings.
