"Make them laugh. Make them cry. Make them wait."
Words from Charles Dickens on how to pen a story, the author of my favorite story A Christmas Carol.
My pen name is Therese J. Roberts and I love to write. A good story makes you laugh, cry, and eager to turn the page because you can't wait. It is my hope that my ramblings on this blog or one of my novels does just that for you.
I wrote my first story when I was eight years old and never looked back. Perhaps it is the idea that, "you can make anything by writing," in the words of C.S. Lewis that inspires me to create, or maybe just the fact that books have a way of touching your heart in a way that nothing else can.
When not attempting to be the next Charles Dickens or C.S. Lewis, you can find me making sacramentals for customers, riding my bike, playing fetch with my dog, grabbing an ice cream with friends, or relaxing on the beach . . . where I live in my dreams.
