K.D. McLean

Biography

LONG WINDED AUTHOR PROFILE

KD McLean was born in a dark time- it was 2:00 AM, but with grit and determination, she persevered until the light came. And we haven't been able to get rid of her since.

Having experienced a husband who, as Rachel's ex did- 'drift' led KD to internet dating. Of course that was well after the voodoo dolls were put away. She reeled in her share of eels and carp in the Plenty of Fish pond.

Like Rachel, KD is enjoying her own happy ever after with a intelligent and handsome man- who keeps hiding her eyeglasses so he can stay handsome.

Being single, without a billionaire boyfriend was tough. She's got the guy, and buys Lottery tickets- half a loaf and all that, you see?

The Story of Rachel is her first novel. The topic was inspired by some book she picked up somewhere. It was a wonderful book- the woman who wrote it might make some money, KD hopes. She has tried and failed miserably in this paragraph to create a witty reference to the number fifty for some reason.

Sensuality and laughter are two qualities that make life a blessing. There are many others, of course, but the most important gift of life- love- is deeply enhanced by these two endowments.

She's not saying a word about her research for this novel. Nope. Not a damn word. Kids and grandchildren… need we say more?

Life is good. Life is a gift. KD knows this.

Personal Anecdotes: You want MORE stories? I haven't written enough?

Here's an anecdote for you then. Hope you're happy, you cruel beast!

Unlike most writers, I've not been prolific during my life. A grocery list was a challenge. And yes, then I'd leave it on the kitchen counter when I'd go to the supermarket.

But I digress.

I got the 'writing bug' this year, and started The Story of Rachel. It has been, beyond a doubt the most intensive and difficult thing I ever undertaken in my life outside of childbirth. I had to learn how to use a semi-colon properly! I didn't even know that 's what it was called! I called it that winky thingy you do in emails! I should have bought stock in printer paper companies. And in red pen manufacturing companies.

And just as the pain of childbirth begat the rewards of parenthood, the pain and work of writing begat an adventure I never thought I would have. I wouldn't trade this experience for anything- okay, maybe for that damn winning Lottery ticket, let's be honest.
