For Writers

What kinds of things did I wonder about when I started writing? There were so many things.

When I signed my first book contract in 2007, I had an agent, a small advance, and a seven-year contract with a small traditional publishing house. Years later, when I went Indie, I knew the level of quality I wanted my books to have.

I attended the Antioch Writers Workshop in Yellow Springs Ohio, for three summers ***** and studied under Katrina Kittle (fiction), ***** and ****(poetry) There I learned how to critique and be critiqued professionally.

I have been a member of two critique groups in Memphis one was all genres, and the other was a gathering of three other author friends focused on writing our first romance novels.
