I'm not one to talk about myself, but it's part of the publishing process. People want to know what you're up to -- who you are. So here goes: I'm wife, sister, in-law, aunt, mother of 2 boys, grandmother of 2 boys, great-grandmother of 3 more boys, animal advocate, Air Force Veteran, 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: Hello, Jesus - A Fun Christmas Cookie Story -- was important for me to write. Faith based, I wanted to honor God with my first published work. I think the message of love and prayer is ageless and necessary. It's available at Amazon.
To help me write better, I read just about every genre: 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 works 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 do it yourself or find someone to help you with proofing and publishing. Thanks to technology, the resources available are numerous. There's success in numbers. One at a time, write, publish, write, publish... You know the drill. It's cause and effect. Persistence pays off. Practice causes progress.
