When she was 7 years old, though, she had other dreams: she wanted to play baseball with the N.Y. Yankees and thought that writing novels would be her backup job. But while she was waiting to be invited to join the famous baseball team, she completed her first romance novella, which was about 2 mallard ducks, when she was 7 years old. It was the first time, as she recalls, that she understood that she wanted to be also a writer. In fact, this nover earned a gold star and she kept writing. In fact, it was her grandfather who inspired her in writing, because he was reading for her fairy tales, when she was very young, that she really adored and kept listening.
