Dear Mr. Johnson —

As an Author, I see myself a storyteller and person who can help other humans engage their creative eye. It is about telling a story in a fashion that helps them visualize it and feel the emotion of the story itself. I have published 4 novels and have helped countless authors publish their works.

That's why as an Author I have been able to previously:
Assisted in the writing of more than 10 children's novels.
Was part of a team that helped source stories for a Creepy Book.
Published more than 10 novels myself.
Won more than 15 awards for my published pieces.

I sincerely look forward to speaking with you and the rest of the team. If there is any additional information that might be helpful in terms of assessing me as a candidate, please let me know. I would be happy to send over any information that you might need.
