I have always loved reading. It became my passion as I grew up. As a teen, I tried my hand at fiction a few times, but didn't pursue it. Instead, I pursued a career in journalism -- where I knew I could make money (well, a little bit, anyway).

I've been writing fanfiction for a few years and love the feedback from readers. I only seriously began thinking of writing a book in the spring of 2012. After reading 50 Shades of Grey and hearing people talk about it in the summer, I became inspired to write my own erotic romance. This was mainly because I found 50 Shades to be complete drivel and poorly written.

I made a dare to myself to write a book...and I did...in about three months. The result is something I can hold in my hands and say I did...

Thanks for the friend request. Glad to meet you. :)"


Hi Elena: It is great to meet you too. I just found out from the moderater, however, that it's not cool to contact people directly...I didn't know that! I thought anyone was allowed to contact anyone on Goodreads, if they had an interest in the same reading materials. Sorry if I broke a rule!
Anyway, I'm glad to have you as a Goodreads friend. I am fairly new to this site and just learning how it works. I'll be sure to visit your profile and see the books you have read or are reading. I was a reader long, long before I became an author. I wrote The Fifty List as a dare to myself and now I'm addicted...I can't stop writing! :) Anyway, thanks for accepting my friend request.
Darlene
