This is my first time writing a blog! Thanks Stacey for the introduction! I am really excited to be joining in on the blog. I am one of those people that needs a buddy to get through things. When I go on a diet, if someone isn’t dieting with me, I won’t stick with it. If I don’t have a workout partner, I am not going to work out. So, having three writing partners to help keep me in gear is just what I need! Thanks ladies for your inspiration!
I started to love reading when I was in middle school. I couldn’t get my hands on Nancy Drew fast enough. I would read a book a day. I like to read a variety of genres. I am a huge Harry Potter fan. I really think Harry, Hermione and Ron are my friends. The characters in the books I read become so real to me. I get emerged in their story. Until I feel I am almost a part of it. Crazy I know.
I didn’t know I wanted to be an author. In high school I enjoyed making up stories that used my vocabulary words, but I didn’t think of writing a book. After college I had an idea one day and started writing. I was 22 years old. I didn’t tell anyone at first that I was writing a book. I didn’t even know where I was going with it. I had the beginning and that was it. I didn’t finish the book until years later. I had set it down and never picked it back up until I moved to Kentucky. Right before I met the infamous twins, I finished my romance novel. They were the first ones to read it all the way through!
I wrote a young adult paranormal, mystery romance while living in Kentucky. I was homesick and based my book back in Michigan and created characters with a lot of the same characteristics of my family, friends, and even some not so well liked people in my life J I even used some of their real first names. I had a lot of fun writing that book, I wrote it quickly too. I wrapped it up a little too soon. It is one of my next projects to go back through and revise the end.
I have been working on writing my synopsis to send to Sue Grimshaw. I was ecstatic that she liked my pitch on, SEA OF PASSION. I planned all along to make it a trilogy. She asked in my synopsis to add in about the other two books I plan to add. The funny thing is, the characters I originally planned to use, I couldn’t come up with their story. I have thought of two completely different ones, and I love them! I can’t wait to get writing them now! I hope that Sue likes my first three chapters and will want to see the full. It would of course be a dream come true. So keep your fingers crossed for me!! I will keep you all posted!
