Moki is a freelance writer, editor and blogger who is a self-proclaimed geek and fangirl. Her love of books began at the age of 9 when she picked up Mark Twain's The Prince and the Pauper off the mini library shelf in the back of her classroom. Until then she had only looked at books with pictures (mostly of horses and ponies) but something made her want to try out a "grown-up" book that day and soon she discovered the joy of getting caught up in a story purely from the written word. Becoming a writer happened much later in life but it is still that first "real" book that can be credited with creating a love for words that made her want to write some of her own.
