At the Beginning with You

This is the title to the first song my husband and I danced to at our wedding in 2000.

hand“We were strangers
Starting out on a journey
Never dreaming what we’d have to go through
Now here we are
And I’m suddenly standing
At the beginning with you”  Donna Lewis & Richard Marks

At the time it aptly described our humble beginnings and now I keep returning to the idea that I’m starting at the beginning of a new adventure in writing with you, my reader.  It is a journey I hope to make with you by my side and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else but right here, right now.

The idea of the journey is also significant as it is an all-encompassing theme that I have adopted for my writing.  Quite often my characters go on a physical journey but the most vital expedition they make is the one to self-awareness.

No matter the genre or scope of the tale, be prepared to walk with me into the hearts and minds of individuals facing a personal cross-road or life-changing crisis.

So I invite you to take my hand and travel with me to new and exciting places in search of those things we’d rather were left untouched.

I am a writer of adventure stories (although this is not an official category my writing spans YA, NA, Speculative Fiction, and Romance) who taught high school English in a past life. I am a freelance writers and editor who loves giving creative writing workshops and advising about the self-publishing landscape. I'll have 3 books published in my Chronicles of Xannia series as of April 2017, 3 non-fic industry publications, three short stories in two anthologies, and one essay on the believability factor in fiction writing in a guide to writing. I am a mother and a wife with an OCD bent toward organization - but I hate cleaning and anything related to it, so I'm definitely not a housekeeper! ;) I learned how to shoot an olympic bow when I was in high school and I look forward to taking it up again in the future. I enjoy playing adventure games on my PSIII, X-Box 360, and Wii. I have a quick mind and a good sense of humour but I am not a humourous person, though I try.
