Fiorella's father brought home used paper from work for her to draw on when she was a pre-schooler. In kindergarten, Mrs. Ruebright showed her how to make hats and Christmas chains and valentines and animal faces out of paper. Somewhere along the line, her daddy taught her how to construct a paper kite and fold a paper boat. Later, Fiorella used paper to record her poems, stories, and musical compositions. Even in the age of computers, she's still looking for paper--reams and reams of it for her romances.
But the forerunner of it all was the paper to draw on because art was Fio's first and most basic talent.
