Writers Wanted

Guest post for the Austin Mystery Writers (September 2016)

I feel awkward telling my readers that growing up I never had an inclination toward becoming a writer. Too often I’ve heard of authors writing since they were children. Jane Austen is known to have flexed her creative muscle as a teenager, writing sentimental stories to entertain her family and Virginia Woolf produced magazines about fam...

Topics Mentioning This Author
