Bobbi Schemerhorn


For the entirety of my life I was faced with the same question that everyone else out there has been faced with since the moment you stepped into Junior High School. What do you want to do with your life? What do you want to be when you grow up? I had no idea! Who does? I enjoyed the creative arts, dancing, acting, singing(badly), painting and writing.

If I could use my imagination I wanted to do it, full on, no holds bared it's what I wanted to do. But I was told that it was not possible, pick something more realistic. So, I bounced around from one dead end job to another searching for that elusive grown up, responsible career. Thought I found it, several times, but the luster wore off quickly.

Till one day the voices that used to sing to me as a child, that called to me to tell their stories came back. Full force, screaming and jumping around to get my attention. I ignored them for a very long time and then I finally wrote down their stories. I thought that writing down their words would be enough to appease them, because I could never make a career out of telling their stories to others.

10 years pass, 10 long years and several more dead-end jobs. Like pieces on a chess board my life had been moved into the proper squares, the opportunity placed at my feet. After being laid off I stumbled across a wonderful writer who was kind to me. She told me of how she got started as an Indie, how I could follow my dreams too. I just needed to want it badly enough. My heart ached everyday knowing that I was not living out my true passion.

That passion was writing, it always has been. Since I was a child in elementary school that's all I wanted to do. Tell the stories of the voices in my head. Now with the support and love of my family I am able to follow that passion. Finally after many years of searching, I have figured out what I want to be when I grow up. A creator of worlds, a writer, an author.

Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Well I have a number of guilty pleasures. I'm a bit of a nerd, I love to play video games. When I'm not blowing things up I enjoy watching movies or TV. I also do 5km races throughout the year at many different events.
What is your writing process?
Before I start to write I create my "murder board", basically what that is, is a cork board that I have put a number of flash cards on. I write down what characters will be in the book, then the major scenes that I want within the book and of course the climax. Once I have this done, I open up my writing program and just start writing. I know it seems silly but it's really that simple. I never write in sequence, my stories come out in pieces, I've written the last sentence in the book before anything else. I'm a connect the dots type of writer. Chapter five is written before one and I figure out how to get them to come together.
