Brittiany A. Koren knew she might want to be a writer since she was five years old and walked into her dining room where her mother and grandmother were playing backgamon and announced that when she grew up she wanted to be a lawyer like her grandfather, a prima ballerina becuase it's good exercise, or a writer because making up stories is fun. By the time she reached high school and could do 65 words a minute on the typewriter, she knew writing was the path for her. She can be found at writtendreams.com.
