Today is the first time I’m blogging at Night Writers and I just wanted to say hello and thanks for having me! You may be asking yourself who I am, so let me tell you a bit about myself.
I’m a twenty-six year old bestselling paranormal romance writer who is happily married, a mom to two kittens and who is about to (THIS FRIDAY) retire from the teaching world and be a full time author. For the past four years, I’ve been an instructor of Chemistry at my local university. It is such a daunting process to be able to say that I won’t be doing that anymore. I graduated high school at 13 to end up earning 3 BS degrees, 3 MS degrees, and a PhD (all in the math and sciences)…and now I’m leaving it all to do something near and dear to my heart.
I love writing and reading romance. I’ve been a romance junkie for about three years now. I picked up my first book while I was in chemo and needing something to read, and 5,000 books later, I don’t think I’ve put a book down.
I’ve always been a writer, it’s just recently—1 year ago July 6th—that I decided to focus on romance and pave my way to publication. It’s been a crazy ride and I’m learning so much. But I love it.
So now, what will I be blogging about here? My title is Real Life, Writing, and the Paranormal. I’m a paranormal author, though a have a few contemporary series lined up in the next couple years, and I love everything paranormal. I’ll be talking about books that I’ve read, paranormal aspects in writing and real life, and just normal day-to-day aspects of becoming a writer. Since I’m starting a new journey of being a stay-at-home author and wife, I’m going to share my experiences and ask for your help! I’m going to be so lost not being in school. I’ve been taking or teaching classes in college for 13 years now…I may need some help. Plus, starting in 2013, my hubby and I will start trying to start a family. O_O
Writing used to be the way I could escape; now it’s a way for me to share my world. I hope you get a chance to visit and see what I have to offer and show me a way to live my new life.
Thank you so much for having me!
