Did you know that Laura Ingalls Wilder was sixty-five years old before her first book was published? Sixty-five!
Let me tell you, I am nowhere near sixty-five. And that makes the fact that my third book released this week even sweeter. Just look at that beautiful picture. THREE books with my name on them. :-)
Sometimes, I can't even believe how all of this has worked out. To go from having stories in my head, to writing them down, to EDITING, to finding other people who saw the potential in the stories, too, and were willing to give them a shot. Wow. It's a lot. But to be able to hold these books in my hands and see my name on the covers ... and have other people tell me they loved them? Wow. Just wow.
Thank you for being along for the ride and for helping this crazy author live her dream. Because without readers, there's no point in me writing these stories down (except to get my characters to hush, but that's another tale).
I hope you're enjoying these stories as much as I enjoyed writing them--or even more since you didn't have to go through the editing process with me. Ha!
And may I never wake up from this dream-come-true. Because it's lovely, in spite of all the crazy chaos that goes with it.
Have you ever had a dream come true? Are you still working towards making yours happen? You've got time! Laura Ingalls Wilder is proof of that. ;-)
This is a place for me to tell you about what I'm writing, talk about the process or where some of my ideas came from, or even have other authors come in and talk about their books.
