September first marks the second anniversary of the publishing of my first book, South of the Pier. I remember my first sale and I kept the receipt!
It has always been my dream to write. And I must say it is wonderful to have a dream come true!
Many people ask how long it took for me to write my first book. I tell them ten years, from my first writing seminar to the actual publishing of my book. Of course, it takes less time to write now, but the long haul of getting my first book completed brought confusion, enthusiasm, frustration, elation, and long suffering. Some well known authors also include blood and sweat as things they’ve given for their first novel.
When you have a story to tell you need to tell it. To those who want to write, my best suggestion is to start writing and keep writing. Remember, if you go after your dreams, they can come true.
Thank you to all those who supported me during this rough ten years and those who believed in me and have read my work,
You’re the best!
