Hi there! I’m Nortina!

I’ve been writing stories since I was about three years old. My earliest memories are creating stories together with my father. He was the illustrator while I penned the tale. Our stories included the titles “The Junkyard Kids” and “Children’s Island” and a Star Wars-inspired space odyssey about an alien princess kidnapped in the middle of an intergalactic war (that was all his idea). He was my greatest inspiration, and though he passed when I was a teenager, he continues to inspire me. I want to make him proud—truly, I want to make all of my family proud—when I finally finish writing that book. This is my inspiration, this is my will, this is my motivation. I’ve found mine. Now what is yours?
