I think I would say that it was believing in myself. I started writing my first book,CAROLINE, at 21. I had no idea then how hard it was to sell a novel to a New York publisher - and I wasn't at all sure I would even get that far. When I finished the book, some people I knew (like my own dad!) reminded me that the odds were against me. They were afraid I'd be hurt & disappointed by rejection. But I decided I had nothing to lose, and that I'd written the kind of book I wanted to read. CAROLINE was rejected by several publishers - and I was submitting it without an agent, which was very tough in those days - but eventually an editor at Ballantine Books read it and took a chance on me. CAROLINE went on to be their bestselling title in December of 1977. :-)(less)

I have thought about it, but haven't attempted a children's book. My older grandson, Noah, is a talented artist and I've suggested to him that together we might be able to write a book - even just for fun. So far, he hasn't taken me up on it, but maybe this will be the year! (less)

I'm up to my ears in edits for Surrender the Stars & Touch the Sun eBooks, but wanted to stop by here and let you know that Caroline & Silver Storm are live on Amazon & B&N!

They look beautiful, I think! I especially love the Silver Storm cover. The model for Andre wrote me that it's his favorite of 1500+ books covers he's on! :)
