Today, I am pleased to welcome back, Tracee Lydia Garner! Please enjoy this delightful interview. Have you always wanted to be an author?  
I had no idea stories were in me at all. The start of my journey starts with depression, flunking out of school, specifically community college math for liberal arts and an awful English teacher I did not like at all. In my college days, I just wasn't convinced I was going to make it and I remember one late night surfing on the computer, feeling down and I asked God for "something else".
