There has always been a part of me that is drawn to writing. I used to write stories as a kid and now I get to write as often as I want, whether it is full length novels, short stories, or posts for my blog. Writing has allowed me to take control of parts of my life and create and share things that excite me! I want to share that with each of you!
Whether you write for yourself, for an audience, or want to learn more about the writing process, there is something here for you!
One of the favorite things about my job is that I have the opportunity to talk to authors and learn about their writing processes. Be sure to check out the Author Interviews and follow the blog so that you don’t miss new interviews that are coming up!
Or you can check out the Learn From the Masters series to learn more about your favorite authors and their writing lives.
