When I was a kid, I used to lie on my bed on Sunday afternoons and plow through one, maybe two books in an afternoon. Once I had read all the craptacular YA lit that our local library had to offer back in the late 80’s, my mom started bringing home Agatha Christie mysteries for me to read. I was hooked. Before I even made it to high school I was a voracious reader.
I didn’t do a lot of my own writing back then, but I did fantasize about being a famous author. Not so much that I would be a celebrity, but that I could think of stories like that.
Well, fiction has never been my thing, but at some point all this writing that I have done on my blog since 2007 started to be something. Something I didn’t know I had in me.
It started to be good.
Maybe I couldn’t make up stories, but I could definitely tell my own.
This year my dream of becoming a published author came true when Three Minus One came out. In September more of my writing will be published.
I am one of the author’s in the HerStories Project anthology called My Other Ex: Women’s True Stories of Leaving and Losing Friendships.
The book is due out in September, but you can pre-order here (which also means you’ll get your book early! WOOT!), and get a $1 off by ordering early. Aw yeah.
