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)

Caroline & Silver Storm eBooks!

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! :)
