From earliest childhood, Regan was an avid reader and upon discovering Alexander Dumas and Charles Dickens, she was hooked on books that carried the reader away to a different time and place. Preferring the quiet of her room and a good book to spending time with people, she traveled far beyond those four walls. When her mother relentlessly looked for friends for the introverted Regan—yes she still is shy and introverted despite the outward appearance of being outgoing—Regan would take off with a book or two and hide to avoid being forced into a social situation.
Her first foray into writing, aside from tedious English assignments in high school and college, were two non-fictions intended to be of assistance to people with disabilities. Both were a struggle to write despite their ultimate purpose and convinced Regan she was most certainly not a writer. Both books were completed, they made their way to the population that would benefit the most from them and she moved on or back to her reading roots.
