Before I start regaling you with all the trials and tribulations that go along with becoming a published romance writer, I thought I'd share a little background information.
I have always had an intense love of books, ever since I was a child. To this day, I am an avid reader of many different types of books. I tend to switch between various romance genres, suspense, crime stories and real-life tales. If there is a good plot, interesting and intriguing characters and a good flow to the book, I'm hooked.
Good books are what spawned my desire to write. That, and the fact I've always been a storyteller. Even as a teenager, my room was full of notebooks. Some had different stories written in them, others full of journal entries or various odd notes and scribbles penned within.
In my adulthood, I have etched out a meager living through writing. Most of this work, however, has been through various copy writing ventures, short stories and articles mainly published through online ventures. Now, I find I have more of a need, a burning desire really, to write what I am passionate about.
So, that leads me into new territory and my attempt at writing romantic fiction. I invite you to follow me along this journey as I work towards my goal - mainly, to publish and make a name for myself in the Romance genre of writers.
I'd love to hear from you as well, whether you're following the same path or well on your way to success. Writing can be such a solitary task so it's nice to know others are out there, pounding away at the keyboard, in search of fulfilling their own dreams.
Good luck to us all.
