Like so many other writers, I had the urge to create stories from the very beginning. I probably left scratches in my mother’s womb that resembled cave drawings. As a child, telling stories in comic strip form was a natural for me. Then I created stories to perform while bringing to life the pretend console “radio” my sister and I concocted from a large cardboard box. That was a l-o-n-g time ago. No soap operas or even Sergeant Preston of the Yukon on radio any more.
By the time I was fourteen, I’d sold my first article to my hometown newspaper. Along the way, I’ve sold short stories, interviews, and articles to magazines and newspapers.
Michigan State University’s two inch thick catalog blew my mind with all the wonderful classes it offered, so that’s where I attended.
But deep in my heart, I wanted to write–and sell– a book length story—a novel! I jump-started my understanding of writing and selling a novel when I joined Romance Writers of America. I spent a four year stint on the other side of publication as editor of the Mid-Michigan chapter’s newsletter, the Mirror and was immersed in informative and insightful articles and chapter programs from top notch authors.
It is with deep gratitude that I’m using what I’m constantly learning from fellow writers, family, and friends to create my writing projects and now my novels.
