What’s my secret?

I’ve been writing for years without anyone knowing. That’s right, no one knows that I’ve been writing except the agents/editors I’ve submitted to.


Like many writers, since I was young I’ve written stories whether on paper or in my head. Over the years I’ve written a little here and there. A few years ago I began writing again and couldn’t stop.   I never had intentions of getting published until I finished my first novel and started the second one. When I realized that writing was what I should have been doing all along I took the next step. Now, it’s to the point that I plan on waiting until I get an agent or offer to announce to my family and friends, “Hey guess what?”.

Is it a lonely life? Nope and if you’re a writer you should understand completely.

What I’ve learned so far about the world of publishing?

Rejection happens to everyone. Never take it personally.

Write it  and put it away for at least a month. Then go back and edit/revise. Better yet, give it a couple of months, trust me on this one!

An agent wrote a rejection letter a long time ago and passed it out to every agent they know. LOL

Even the greatest started somewhere.

You MUST read in the genre you write! Heck, you must read everything you can get your hands on!

There is no right or wrong way to do anything. Do what works best for you!

Who am I?

I’m an unpublished and un-agented writer of a variety of genre’s (no vampires here, I promise!). Currently giving YA a shot and loving it! I have two teenagers with friends so I’ve got an endless source of reference. My WIP is a YA ghost story. I grew up in the 80’s but it should have been the 30’s, 40’s or 50’s. Sitting in an airport, people watching/listening is fun. A few of the items on my bucket list are to learn to fly an airplane and participate in a flash mob. I’d never go bungee jumping or parachuting but I’m game for pretty much anything else. I don’t pay much attention to the little things; life’s too short. I love to laugh and a good cry never hurt anybody. I’ve learned enough to know I have more to learn about the business.

Always remember everything happens for a reason!
