I was a sophomore in college when I was accused of living my life as though I were “hopping down the bunny trail.” True, I was a little naive at the time. Everything I knew I had learned from voraciously reading books. Experience? Practically none.
But I went for that experience every chance I got and created chances when they didn’t appear. I think, and hope, some of that experience shows through in my writing.
I have been writing since 2006 when I first read fan fiction on the web and thought, “I can do that.” William Grey, former editor and writer for “National Geographic,” read my manuscript of a novel and told me that my writing was worth pursuing. I did everything I could to learn more, including reading books on how to write better and subscribing to “The Writer” magazine.
Since then, I have written short stories, a couple vignettes and drafts of three novels, two of which are in their third go-round.
My blog is about what I have learned while writing and traveling around the country in an RV.
My site includes editing experience, samples of my writing and photos taken while traveling.
Here I am, one more example that it is never too late to discover your passion and follow your dreams.
