After writing three books, certain topics are emerging in my novels. Some are intentional, but others are born through the writing process. Some you may have noticed, some you may not…
I am a workaholic. There, I said it. But it’s the work now that drives me. Not unrealistic deadlines.
This is usually the time when we humans like to think about all the nutty stuff that happened over the last year. A lot happened in 2021!
Most writers love nothing more than to hole up in their special space and simply write. But public appearances? Ooh, that’s a form of torture all on its own. I tell you about my own fears with book signings.
One of the key parts before writing ANY story for me is knowing who my characters are. And I realised, maybe you don’t know THIS character… I share a little of my own backstory.
With COVID posing challenges for charity’s to raise money, a friend approached me for help. This was the solution – naming 2 characters in next upcoming book. It was very successful for MPower Alliance and I was stoked to help!
What does my daily life look like as an author? Pretty boring really, but I’m living the dream. I share my reality.
This post is about death and grief. It may be a trigger for some, so please consider this the warning label. In this post I talk about what grief has brought to my life. It can be many soul breaking things, but it can also be inspirational.
I avoided writing about this topic. Avoided it like it’s a hot fire, ready to burn my fingertips if I even broach it. But really, how can writing about this pandemic be avoided? Writer’s write about what’s going on in our lives, whether that’s through memoirs, on a social media post, scribbled down into a private journal, or weaved into a fantastic storyline. What has become in the world is far from fantastic.
After 50 years, I have written a book. Now the book is sitting in front of me, staring me down, willing me to finish it. The Fear of Failure is Real.
