I wasn't interested in writing until later in my life, but thinking back to my childhood, I named everything I liked so I guess it's fitting that I now give names to characters in stories. The problem now is I have too many ideas and not enough time in the day. I'm a mother of four beautiful children, who are growing up much too fast. I'm married to the best guy in the world!

Coincidence

I’ve worked on this novel for over three years. When I first started writing, I wrote about 30,000 words then stopped to become a certified foot zoner. After I took a year off writing I tried to get back into the groove of the story. I was able to write a few more chapters, but it was like I was running into a brick wall. I would leave it and write something else for a while then com... Read more of this blog post »
