Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in California, both in the north and south of the state. I’m Maggie Jane, your Nerdy Novelist. Believe it or not writing was never one of my fan favorites growing up. While I loved to read, the writing portion always remained a struggle. Fortunately, my college roommate, a genius by all accounts, helped refocus my writing catastrophes into semi works of art. I’m surprised we’re still friends! She worked hard turning my prose-tastrophies into academically appropriate pieces. Twenty-five + years later I’m embarking on this writing journey and excited to share with everyone!
When did you first start writing?
In college and then I resurrected the urge to writhe through my involvement in the National Writing Project.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
After reading my entire life and joining the National Writing Project, I was encouraged to begin writing my own works.
