About me

Why write?


Since I can remember, I was always telling stories about anything and everything.  I remember telling my younger cousins stories about elephants, creating vivid pictures of a world that was non-existent.  The imagination is a great escape and I used it to create a world where the unreal met the real. 


Beliefs


Reading and writing are paths to which we can express our convictions.  I believe that everyone can do anything that they decide to do.  It doesn't matter if you have a disability or  are from a different race.  We are all created equally and should be treated as such.


I think that determination and will are very important.  Determination gives me the desire to keep trying, even though I may fail miserably.  If I keep trying, I will, at some point, succeed.  Will gives me the strength to always move forward.  It helps me stay focused and positive. 


Name


My name always sparks up a conversation.  I think everyone always seems to mispronounce it.  It doesn't bother me, other than when I get mail addressed to Mr. Talin.  Last I knew, I wasn't a male Hindu God!  With my supernatural powers set aside, my female name is pronounced as follows: Tal-ean (like Pauline, but with a T) and Mar-ee.  Yes, there are a lot of females named Talin, although all may be spelled differently.
