Tanela Hicks; wife, mother, and oh yeah writer.
I have always been a dreamer and in the summer of 2010 I decided to write down a portion of a dream I had. That dream, which was actually more of a nightmare help formed what is now my first completed novel project Dreams of the Heart. It took a long time for me to decide that I was a writer. I thought that my daydreaming and daily whimsy was something I did to past the time. But with encouragement of my husband and others close to me; I realized that my daydreaming and my imagination were interesting, inspiring, creativity and funny. My passion for all things creativity, music, writing and art should be shared. I am often able to translate what I feel or see in this world into a story, mostly fantasy themed but sometime very real and very impactful; just like my dreams. My stories thus far have been fictional reality. As strange as it may seem, the characters I have created are as much a part of me as the family friends that surround me every day. I realized as a writer I do have an outlet for all these stories. As these characters become real to me my wish is that they become loved by the reader.
Through my writing I have discovered myself and that breakthrough alone has been worth the ride. That discovery realization alone has been worth the ride. I know I still have from to go but I am looking forward to the journey. Come join me!
