I have found writing about me very difficult. I would much rather write about one of the characters in my books. I am going to try my best to let you know a little about me and my world, as it is right now. I live in Sapulpa, Oklahoma but I was born in California. I am a retired RN, love adventure and traveling. I spend most of my time now writing on my latest book, which is historical fiction. I love to read and my favorite author is Diane Gabaldon. I think I fell in love with Jamie in the Outlander Series. I prefer fiction to nonfiction with interests in other genres, historical romance, science fiction, and mystery. Those three areas cover a lot of ground.
Being raised in a dysfunctional home, I used reading as an escape mechanism, and it worked most of the time. I could crawl on the bed, and go into a different time and place. I could even be a different person if I wanted. I truly came to love books. I have books that are worn and tattered and not worth five cents, but I can’t part with them. Enough of that.
I am fairly new at writing. I started my book “The Tower” in March and it was published in November. I can say it was a learning experience from the start. I continue to learn all the time, from other people, who have published, or those trying to publish. I guess the bottom line is, I am always learning and hopefully improving my craft.
I want my blog to be someplace that I can go to and write what I feel. Hopefully, have some meaningful discussion on writing and everything it entails. This is a new world for me, and I am jumping into it with both feet. Ye Ha
