People ask me all the time what drove me to become a writer and at first I thought my story was different from other authors. Six years ago I was teaching science at an outreach center where students pre-k through high school came for environmental programs. But the Multiple Sclerosis that had been percolating in the backdrop of my life decided to rear its ugly head. When it became impossible for me to stand in front of a classroom and teach I knew I had to find something else that would make me happy and challenge my brain.
And here’s where my story is so similar to many authors. You see, I wasn’t really new to using my imagination and writing. I have always looked at other people in other cars on the highway and made up stories about their journeys. I wrote plays in elementary school. And when I was in high school and college, though I wasn’t penning creative stories, I was that student that wrote a ten page report when the professor only required five. Yeah, it’s okay to hate me.
So the day I put down the chalk, I put my fingers on the keyboard. Now my characters clamor to have their stories told. Every place I visit has become a possible setting for a novel. Snippets of songs inspire me to create a new love story. My family members now worry that something they say or do will end up in one of my stories. And truth be told … everything is fair game at this point. Bwahaha.
I’m still trying to find my way around this publishing business. And though I’ve written in many genres including science fiction and paranormal, futuristic and contemporary, one thing remains the same—my characters always find their soul mates and happy-ever-after rides into the sunset. I love writing romance. And I’m happy to have heroes and heroines who can find their loves whether they’re werewolves or cops.
I hope you’ll check out my newest story, Blind Love; Tilling Passions Book 1.
He’s a shock jock looking to reform. She’s an accountant hoping to cut loose.
Can love open their eyes to forever?
