Toni Morrison wrote the book that truly inspired me to be a writer. I did not know it would be such a long, difficult, and rewarding journey as a writer. But I’m thankful for the opportunity to be one. I appreciate it. Toni Morrison is a Nobel Prize and Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist, editor, and professor. Some of her best known novels include: The Bluest Eye, Song of Solomon and Beloved. She has even been awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. If you have not read any of her work, I encourage you to do so. She's an exceptional writer.
