I’ve just had the honor of writing a guest post on my multitalented friend and fellow writer-blogger, Louella Dizon San Juan’s blog, Magic and Fantastic. Louella is one of the most multitalented people I know: working mother, businesswoman, playwright, author/illustrator and advocate for women and girls in math and science. Louella recently published her first middle grade novel, The Crowded Kingdom, which my son and I loved! (Available on Amazon).
I was thrilled when Louella asked me to write a post for her guest series: Reboot: Start Up Your Life Again. Owning the Gift, my first guest blog, is about the life-changing moment when I realized that writing was no hobby, but part of my identity.
Here’s a sneak peak:

“So you call yourself a writer?”
Am I a writer?
Without a doubt, though it took me years to say it so emphatically. Writing was always background music, my secret identity, like a private security blanket that accompanied me through my every incarnation.
