I am an author, graphic designer, editor and teacher of over 15 years, and along the way had started a family. I’ve been writing since high school, when a red pen was the universal sign for a mistake; not a squiggly line. (I will be buried with a red pen in my hand.) Having written several different genres of books throughout my life, and finding traditional publishing industry to be tear inducing, I abandoned my lifelong desire to be a published author and focused on my children.
A few years back, I bought myself an iPod, and…found Amazon’s epublishing. I still read voraciously, and with the digital revolution hitting paper books on the back of the head, I began to hope. Thrilled with the prospect of finally getting my books published, I formatted my files for eBooks, created the covers, and uploaded. How many get the chance to be able to say that they’ve done exactly what they’ve always wanted to do? I wanted to be a mom: I am. I wanted to teach: I am. I wanted to design: I am. I wanted to write…
Love my writings, or not, I can finally say, “I am a published author.”
