I would have to say the love of adventures and interesting characters. Since childhood I loved creating believable stories with lovable characters. As a writer, I'm old school, enjoying interesting plots with several twist woven within. My unique life experiences were very helpful in bringing new technologies to the forefront. While writing it seems my characters once developed take on a life of their own and I'm just along for the ride documenting their adventure. I thoroughly enjoy writing family oriented novels without all the harsh language, extreme violence and things that we are confronted everyday in real life. To me, novels should be uplifting, enlightening and have happy endings. A good book will take you on a grand adventure, empower you, make you cry, laugh, secretly educating you and make you feel it was time well spent. If I could make a reader, or audiobook listener smile, shed a tear, then I have accomplished more than riches. In the late night hours while writing, I too, have done them all.
My sincere appreciation for the question.
Have a great and enjoyable day.

“Even the best of us fall on hard times occasionally, for times and unforeseen occurrences befall us all. Always remember, in this world our wealth statues are built on sand that can be washed away with the slightest storm. Never look down on one's misfortune, for fear one day we ourselves may be looking up. Love and kindness can be infectious, spread it around.”

Lance Hi Adela,
Somewhere on the goodreads website there is an author signup link. It will ask for your book ISBN to confirm you are an author. Once that is complete then you will be directed to an author page.I will do some searching for you, it's been awhile since I filled out the info.

Lance

Adela Carmona Hi Lance, thanks for the friend request. I was wondering how you become a "Good Reads Author". I wrote a children's book and I would love to profile it on Good Reads. Any tips?


Savannah Lance, thank you for the friendship...
