All I ever wanted was to see my book sitting on a shelf in the book store. As a beginner, I had so much to learn. First I had to make my MS the best it could be. Once I joined RWA, I took workshops and gained a wealth of information. I grew as a writer. When I finally finished my first historical romance, I was thrilled to send it off with the hope, like everyone else, I wanted to be published. I entered contests. In 2013 I was a finalist in The Golden Rose Contest and “The Right One”, the first in my trilogy, went on to be awarded Second Place. I signed my first contract with Soul Mate Publishing. Since then I’ve had six books published in historical and contemporary romance.
I love creating new characters and bringing them together in a romantic tale. My characters have depth, emotional investments, life-threatening challenges. The power of a story is in the character’s true emotions. The reader wants to be in the moment. Feel what the characters feel – emotionally. I try to give this to my readers. A writer draws the reader in, portraying personal emotions or characters’ feelings about an experience or situation. Although all my characters are fictitious, I have taken real life experiences to achieve the emotion for my heroes and heroines.
I write because I enjoy it. Even if I have to read, re-read, edit, and read again. It’s worth it. I am so proud I never stopped. Never gave up. There are days when I might pull my hair out, or find other things to do as an excuse to procrastinate. But I keep plugging along.
