I’m a stay at home mom of two wonderful, very active boys. I graduated from Virginia Tech with a degree in Family and Childhood Development (yup, went to school and got my MOM!) Because I was not an English major, I have to rely on my word nerd friends to help keep my grammar correct.
Inspired by the idea of getting to meet and become friends with my favorite band, I started to write six kinds of crazy. The story probably would have died after a few paragraphs (okay, I might have managed a couple of pages) if I hadn’t gotten sick. It was right after Christmas in 2012 and for weeks I was stuck in bed with nothing to do. I kept writing to keep my mind off of being sick and to give me something to do while I laid in bed all day. I was as surprised as everyone else when I got to the end and it was an entire book! I’ve never considered myself a writer and certainly did not believe myself capable of creating a book, but that’s what happened. I probably would have left it as a story for myself or maybe something to share with a few friends if fate hadn’t intervened again. As it turned out, I was so sick it was going to require surgery to make me well. (Thanks Dr. K. for fixing me up!) My husband jokingly told me that I had to publish my book so that we could pay for the surgery and subsequent hospital stay. With the advent of the wonderful e-book I was able to do just that.
It took finishing one book to show me that I can do this. I learned a lot about the writing process along the way and I’m ready to write more. Stay tuned for more books!
