I began to fall in love with writing at the age of ten when I moved from the town I was born in to a big city with no friends. I used the writing to express myself and my deep thoughts. As time went by, I began to see myself as an author. I wanted to be the next great author carrying the great last name of "Wilder". Life and marriage came along and so did a career in accounting, so my writing dream became a hobby. I have since publish a few things, but like they say, if you want to write....keep your day job!
Call me crazy but when I was about 5 years old my godmother asked myself and a few other children what we wanted to be when we grew up and while everyone was giving the typical answers...police officers, nurses, doctors, and lawyers I looked at her with 100% certainty saying, "I want to be the preachers wife." LOL... I suppose I had no idea that wasn't actually a profession. LOL...
I always wanted to be an archaeologist, but then I grew up and wasn't as fascinated by dinosaurs, realized I hated the pragmaticism of science, and focused on something more creative.
When I was little all I wanted was to become a mom and housewife. Those dreams changed when I got older.
