So, I’m actually a writer. Amazing.


A year ago, I was reading a very kind rejection of my now debut novel. How could I have known then that a year later, I’d have a debut book out now and another due out in the spring, with a publisher who is enthusiastic about my stories? I’m still pinching myself. But I can’t deny the fact that I put a tremendous amount of hard work into learning how to write better, and more effectively There’s a lot to be said for perseverance and determination to improve.

But with that, I received uncounted boosts of encouragement, advice, criticism and help from other writers. If you are a writer, join a writing critique group. On the advice of an agent who encouraged me even though she never took me on as a client, I joined a Christian critique group at ACFW. There are scores of wonderful writers there, in large and small groups. They are all a part of me becoming a published author. I could never thank them enough for their patient, continued advice and feedback.

With that wind in my sails, I brought dogged determination into the arena with my imagination and my love of words, and have begun a journey that I know will need continued effort for me to continue to improve, and say the things I want to say. For now, I can stand back a moment, survey this amazing terrain and say, Wow. I’m actually a writer!

I’ll post a link where you can see some of the reviews. If you read my book and like it, please post a review on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, Goodreads, or Allromance ebooks. Thanks!

  1. I’m grateful to have teens that will talk to me also. Even the oldest one who’s stays perpetually mad at me these days.
