Let me introduce myself...
I have been writing ever since I discovered that letters made sounds and a combination of letters made words. It wasn't until recently that I decided to share my work with the public at large.
It's true what people say about writers, "they don't write for fame, fortune and glory...they write for the love of writing and sharing." I'm sure most of my fellow writers know what I'm talking about. I know I'm not the only one that invested in rubbermaid storage bins to store your earlier, written work (before the laptop), just in case you decided to go public.
The only thing I love more than writing, besides the obvious (God, family, life and country), is reading. As you will soon learn, I have an eclectic taste in what I read. There isn't a romance genre that I will pass up. I've recently began reading suspense and paranormal romance and have dabbled in the vampire series, once in a while.
But one day, I'm going to reach in my storage bin and dust off that masterpiece I've been working on.

If I weren't already a fan of Ms. Maarten, her novel Into Thin Air would have roped me in. This is a book of one of the hardest topics in the world to write about, human trafficking and yet Valerie brought the story to life without being gory and graphic. The use of your own imagination travels the story along. Even though there are many horrible points, you still get the urge to cheer for Maia. A great read.
