Writing ...

It's What I Do

Writers write. Dreamers dream. I'm both. If all I had to do was write, I could spend all day doing that. And when I lay my head down for the night, I dream of stories. Sometimes my stories are of the life I imagine. Other times my stories are the life I've lived. Many of my stories are inspired by those I know or come in contact with. 

Even though my schedule is very active, I MUST find time to move the stories from my head to paper. I have a large collection of 'unfinished projects' and plan to publish every last one of them.

Coming Soon

The two stories below are very near and dear to my heart. Writing them gave me great joy and seeing them in print (proof copies) was inspiring. The thrill of opening a package containing a proof (mine or someone else) never gets old!

A friend of mine wrote a book and after reading it,  I commented that the female character frustrated me because she wasn't saying very much. He said he didn't know what she was thinking, but I knew. So, I wrote it!

Although I'm a hopeless romantic, I had never written and published a romance novel. This is my first.

Writing behind someone (he wrote a chapter and then I wrote one in response) was fun. My imagination ran wild and it was ok to dream big. 

Standing still and waiting for  love was a new concept for me. It felt good to allow the heroine to be pursued. Through this character, I got to experience what it felt like to be treated like a lady. 

I started the story of Ruby a few years ago when I lived in North Carolina. I had not published anything I'd written and was nervous about sharing something so private in such a public manner.

So, I decided to start a blog and release a chapter once a week. The feedback was good and it helped me to move forward with publishing.

Several books later, I have decided to bring Ruby to life and allow her to run free.

Ruby's story highlights how quickly we can lose sight of our goals when blinded by desire. 

The woman she looks up to, RaeJean, seems to have everything Ruby wants. But what is the price of such a life?

The world we live in is full of turmoil and chaos. So much is happening faster than we can rocess or learn.

Because My Name is George depicts the importance of community. Our community can help us grown or it can stunt our growth.

We are the community.
