The Florida native says writing gives her a sense of freedom that is both therapeutic and satisfying."

1 Jireh Publishers & Distributor 2001 Dec 27
"One of the main reasons why I wrote Awakenings, is that there are too many people sitting on the sidelines of life. They sit there watching things happen in other peoples lives, instead of making things happen in their own lives. I believe that each individual is born with at least one talent or gift, that is to be used for the benefit of mankind. 'Why,' I wondered, 'do so many people come to the end of their lives never having done the things that they wanted to?' The main purpose of Awakenings is to encourage you to go after your dreams. Your dreams can turn into reality. Choose not to look back on your life, saying 'I wish' or 'I could have.' Be able to say 'I have done' and 'I am doing.'"

1 Homepage of Ptti Flinn 2001 Feb 18
"If I have any advice for aspiring writers it would be to start as soon as you get the bug. Don't put it off because you don't think you're good enough or you are worried that you don't have the proper education. Don't get me wrong, I think everyone should get a college degree. But if there comes a time when you are not writing because you feel that you are not qualified to do so, for whatever reason, then that reason becomes an unneccessary obstacle. Get rid of it!"
