It arrived today!!!
My copy of Something from the Attic arrived today! It was an amazing feeling to hold a book in my hands and read one of my stories. I can't even imagine the thrill of those blessed with a book deal. I can't stop grinning over a short story!
I am A 42 year old Scorpio from rural Indiana that loves to lose myself in the escape of the written word. We remember the characters that we laugh with, love with, and cry with. I thrive on making my reader FEEL.
In the last couple months of 2010 I had seven short stories accepted to anthologies,my first time in print, two more joined the published ranks in January 2011, and one since. I am super excited to be taking this first step towards my dreams. I am currently working on a novel.
"Your acting, or your writing, is not yours to judge. So saying "I'm not very good at this" is some sort of protective mechanism, and it will keep you from sharing it with people. You have to be willing to fearlessly expose yourself." ~Lee Tergesen~
