I write, therefore I am.


Background Information

As a child and a college student I was an avid writer, gaining praise and A's from my instructors over the years. My top honor, however, came in the fifth grade, when my teacher all but begged me to confess to plagiarism because my paper couldn't possibly have been written by a ten year old.

After college, life went on, and my love for writing got lost in the shuffle. Work, bills, and raising a son as a single mother sucked every shred of creative energy out of me. My son is twelve now, and no longer has much time or interest for Mom.

Two years ago, I read the Twilight Series (of all things), then watched the movies, then re-read the books. And, then it came to me - Why couldn't I do this? Six months later, I began researching, and the following month I began to write my first and only complete manuscript. It has been a long journey and a huge learning process. Now, finally I'm close to taking that next step ... the dreaded query.

"Creating a story is incredibly fun, writing it is terribly hard work."

Accomplishments

I've not won any awards, nor have I been offered a lucrative deal from some fancy big-name Publishing house. Those things would require actual submission first. But it's never too late.

Additional Information

I have one completed manuscript - Tradewinds, a YA romance novel. It is a story that lives within my heart. My characters are like family members to me, and I may even be in love with one of them. No, really. I'm currently outlining my follow-up story to Tradewinds, in my mind at least. Also, I have the first eight chapters of a horror novel written in first draft quality and hope to continue on with it once I've figured how to break through that iron wall known simply as Writer's Block. I also dabble in poetry - some fairly good, some dreadful. It's fun all the same.
