I'm Mallory Gaile, a writer, a mother and an Autism advocate.
I've been in love with the written word all my life. My first favorite book was A Fly Went By by Dr. Seuss. Like I would do to so many books in the future I read it until the cover fell off. I don't believe that once you've read a book you're finished with it and should give it to a friend. Instead I think you should tell them what a good book it was, go get a copy, then put your copy on the shelf for future re-reading. As a result there are books all over my house and I wouldn't have it any other way.
I wrote my first story in the eighth grade and while it wasn't a prize winner, it started a fire in my soul. Since then I've written countless stories. I've heard it said that writers are arrogant to assume someone wants to read words we put on blank paper. I don't think it's arrogance at all. I think most of us just have so many stories in our heads, we have to share them or burst.
Thank you so much for sharing mine.
