BLOGWORDS – 5 October 2017 – CHAT THURSDAY –  ON BREAK

CHAT THURSDAY – ON BREAK

 

“I’ve always had voices—er, stories in my head. I once said I should write them all down so someone could write them someday. I had no idea at the time that someone was me!”

 

 

 

“Break the rules. That’s my number one rule. I know the rules [of grammar] and I know how to break them.”

 

I did it to myself, really. Set a high bar with this series, then failed to jump high enough! Being sick threw me off, sure, but that was months ago and now I’m a full manuscript behind schedule!

 

I’ve seen it more than once, and it bears repeating—the blog must suffer for the greater good—my writing. And so it comes to this, no interviews through the rest of this year, and into 2018. Probably til May when The Whispering Winds of Spring (book #4) releases.

 

Not my first choice, but a necessary one. For the sake of the series. #ForSeasons

 

I have been writing since 1995, and began working in earnest on my debut novel, Tessa in 2013.  Meanwhile, I cranked out a few dozen poems, made countless notes for story ideas, and earned my BFA in Interior Design.  I lived with depression for many years, and the inherent feelings of worthlessness and invisibility; I didn’t want to be who I was and struggled with my own identity for many years.  My characters face many of these same demons.

 

I write stories of identity conflict. My characters encounter situations that force the question, “Who am I really?” For all who have ever wondered who you are or why you’re here, my stories will touch you in a very real—maybe too real—and a very deep way. I know, I write from experience.

 

I have four novels previously published. I am currently working on The Silent Song of Winter, Book Three in my new series, Seasons. It releases in February of 2018, following The Long Shadows of Summer which released in August and The Tilting Leaves of Autumn, which releases in November. The fourth and final book in the series, The Whispering Winds of Spring, will be out in May of 2018. Tessa, Clara Bess, and Cissy, in the unsavory heritage series. All of my books are available on Amazon, both for Kindle and in print. I also have several poems included in an anthology, Where Dreams and Visions Live (Anthologies of the Heart Book 1) by Mary Blowers, as well as a short story, Sarafina’s Light, also in an anthology, Blood Moon, compiled by Mary Blowers.

BLOGWORDS – 4 September 2017 – NEW WEEK NEW FACE – THE LONG SHADOWS OF SUMMER RELEASE FEATURE – ON BREAK

NEW WEEK NEW FACE – ON BREAK

 

“I’ve always had voices—er, stories in my head. I once said I should write them all down so someone could write them someday. I had no idea at the time that someone was me!”

 

 

 “Break the rules. That’s my number one rule. I know the rules [of grammar] and I know how to break them.”

 

The launch for The Long Shadows of Summer was more stress inducing than writing it. Or than I realized. Now that she’s launched and out in the world, the stress has (ahem) lifted and I’m surging forward with The Tilting Leaves of Autumn.

 

Still, it’s good to take a break, and this week, New Week New Face is, well, on break. I’ll return next week with a post about writing conferences. Til then, happy reading. And happy writing.

 

I have been writing since 1995, and began working in earnest on my debut novel, Tessa in 2013.  Meanwhile, I cranked out a few dozen poems, made countless notes for story ideas, and earned my BFA in Interior Design.  I lived with depression for many years, and the inherent feelings of worthlessness and invisibility; I didn’t want to be who I was and struggled with my own identity for many years.  My characters face many of these same demons.

Books 3 and 4 in the series will be out in 2018.
