I'm not one to talk about myself, but some like to ask who I think I am...lol. So here goes: Writer, wife, mother of 2 boys, mother-in-law, grandmother of 2 boys, great-grandmother of 3 more boys, animal advocate, Veteran - proudly served in the United States Air Force, homemaker, etc. I'm a woman -- no more details needed. We all know we do a lot more than we even think about.
My first book: Christmas Cookies - A Delicious Manger Story was important for me to publish. Faith based, I wanted to honor God with my first work. I think the message of love and prayer is ageless and necessary. It's available at Amazon.
To help me write better, and because I love it, I read just about every genre including: mystery, fantasy, historical romance, post-apocalyptic, and biographies. I believe to write well, you have to read well and often, fiction and nonfiction. Like most serious, idea-filled writers, I have several books in process.
To my fellow writers: I believe if you're actively writing, you're NOT a"wanna-be". If anyone asks you what you do, tell them, "I'm a writer." Don't be shy or defensive about it. Be proud. Relax and enjoy your craft. If it's your dream to publish your works then find someone to help you through that part of it and while you're waiting for it to take off, move on to your next project.
