Lawana Holland-Moore

Washington, DC, District of Columbia, United States

For me, writing is something that you feel.

It is exciting to create worlds and persons of your own making, often in situations or places you would never find yourself in. You want your readers--whether it is an article or fiction--to see and understand that world and come away from the experience with a feeling of fulfillment.

Writing has been like a friend to me. Something I can always rely upon that brings comfort, familiarity, and happiness. I have always wanted to write. As a child I wrote. As a teen, I wrote. As an adult, I still write.

I am a native Washingtonian, as in the nation's capital, and graduated early from The George Washington University with a double major in journalism and history. I've found that both disciplines have served me well with my writing.

In addition to being included in Dark Dreams, Dark Dreams II and Dark Dreams III (Kensington/Dafina, ed. by Brandon Massey), I am working on my first novel.

I also write and illustrate for children as well and I am a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.
