Sharon Struth believes you’re never too old to pursue a dream. The Hourglass, her debut novel, was a finalist in the National Readers' Choice Awards for Best First Book, and her Blue Moon Lake Novels includes the Barnes & Noble bestseller, Share the Moon.

When she’s not working, she and her husband happily sip their way through the scenic towns of the Connecticut Wine Trail, travel the world, and enjoy spending time with their precious pets and two grown daughters.

She writes from the friendliest place she’s ever lived, Bethel, Connecticut. For more information, including where to find her published essays, please visit sharonstruth.com or visit her blog, Musings from the Middle Ages & More at www.sharonstruth.wordpress.com.

Hi Shannon,
Nice to connect with you too! I'd say making sure you've research the agent to make sure they take the type of work that you write is a start. Second would be to follow their guidelines for submission (if you don't, it's a red flag) and write a professional query letter. And lastly, just write the best book you can write and don't get discouraged by rejection. So much of this is subject for the agent and when the right one comes along and says yes, it means they love your work. That's a great feeling. Good luck!(less)

Most writers will tell you that inspiration happens when we least expect it. When our minds are untethered from the computer and allowed to roam free.


Thus is the case with my April 17th release. Three unexpected paths I took inspired WILLOW’S WAY…

Yeah, it's not like it used to be (they don't make you stay up for 36 hours at a time, lol) but we still have call every four days and only one day off a week. I can't complain too much since the program I'm at treats their interns well, but I'm still dreading it a little. :P

Thanks and hope to see you again soon!

The computer is an amazing thing, huh? You meet all these great people. But it's so cool to actually meet face to face at some point. We're an easy going group so if you only showed up every so often nobody would care. Goo dluck with your intern year. Grueling I've heard? Is that still true?

I would love to join the group! I might not be able to make every meeting (since intern year will likely be grueling) but I hope to make as many as I can. :)

Terri and I actually met on Livejournal (I have a private blog there for my personal rants, lol) and we've been chatting through there for at least a year, I think. So it was great to meet her in person, finally. :) And it was great meeting all of you, too!

Hope to see you soon as well!

Best,
Linda


Sharon Struth Hi Linda,
I see we're now Twitter pals, too. It was great to meet you. I hope you decide to join our little group. We're a small but close knit bunch. I wish I could have stayed longer. Saturdays get busy. We usually end around 12:30 or 1:00.

I thought you and Terri had met in person before so that was quite a surprise. I LOVE Terri! Hope to see you soon.
Sharon
