I have an overactive, creative, imagination. I’m serious! Ideas are constantly swirling in my head.
Then one day, a few years ago, I read an article about independent authors and how they write full-time and even make some money at it, and something clicked in my brain. I thought to myself, I should try writing a novel. And so I did.
When I began, I had no plan, no story idea, no outline, nothing. I just sat down and wrote. My goal was to write 10-30 pages per day. I allowed the story to develop, created characters that I felt would be interesting, and voila, 40 days later, I had written ~60,000 words and an actual novel with a clear start, middle, and finish, lol. It was a romantic mystery which I self-published the novel on Amazon called Third Eye Watch.
My plan had been to keep writing and publishing but I never got around to it. [I even pulled Third Eye Watch off from Amazon after a few months. I had planned to revise it and then republish it. But that was a bad idea…never ever take a book down cause as an indie author, it’s very difficult to go back and reedit a book when you’ve got so many other book ideas.]
Then earlier this year when I found out I was going to be a grandma, I decided to write a children’s book for my first grandchild.
That’s how the very colorfully illustrated Emma & Friends series came to be. Now I have one book in the series published and a dozen more written, and on their way to be illustrated and prepared for publishing.
P.S. I’m also writing books in other genres so please stay in touch. All my books will be available on my website for purchase.
