I’ve always wanted to write, but being a single parent to five, finding the time to write was difficult, especially when working two jobs at a time and some days working 18 hours. But I did what I had to do. After given the opportunity to leave my job and my youngest graduating, I’ve decided to dive in head first into writing full-time, and haven’t slowed down yet. My husband (remarried almost five years ago) says I work more now than I did punching the time clock. I never needed anyone looking over my shoulders while I worked (even thought someone probably did). I just know what needs to be done and push myself not to get ahead, but to stay ahead. Just because I’m home doesn’t mean there isn’t work to be done.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Growing up, I wasn't much of a reader. When I was in fifth grade, my teacher basically said at the beginning of the year that we had to read a certain amount of books for the school year. I think it was fifty. Trying to get out of it, I read the easiest and shortest books. She said every two would count as one. Did I mention that I hated to read? She handed me a Nancy Drew book saying that she thought I would like it. I started with "The Hidden Staircase" and was hooked. I read every one. Sometimes one a day, more on the weekend. You know, I didn't even mind that I could only count two books in a series for the school year.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story I every wrote was "The Flightless Birds of New Zealand." I was twelve. It was published in an Archie publication.
