I don't know why this didn't show up on my page sooner, sorry to be late answering! Books can be challenging in different ways. Probably the one that challenged me the most in terms of just getting it done was called Playing With Fire. I had bad burnout (no pun intended!) and it was tough to get through that one. But the one that was the biggest challenge emotionally was Loving a Lush. It's about a second chance romance and a very sweet guy's battle with alcoholism. That was draining for me, being inside the head of an alcoholic for a couple of months is hard! Thanks for asking! :)(less)

Gusto Dave Thanks for approving us as friends, S.R.

It’s easy to think that a writer finishes a book, sends it to editors, gets the big contract, and lives happily ever after. But the publishing industry is the entertainment business and there’s no such thing as an overnight sensation.

In the BE A STAR series on Chiseled in Rock, we’re looking at the roads to stardom for several giant celebrities. To wrap the installments up, by looking at probably one of the most famous authors on the planet’s biography, we’ll see that paths to fame, be they for a novelist or a film director, indeed overlap neatly.

It’ll be fun! Join us for Willie Nelson’s story today. Lady Gaga and a clever children’s book author have something striking in common which we’ll explore tomorrow. Friday we make the big connection finale with performing arts and a beloved bestseller.
