What is your genre of writing?

I love to blend genres--fantasy, historical fiction, science fiction, drama, romance--I pull them together and try to weave a cogent, engaging story unlike anything I've ever seen or read before.

Have you ever been published, else do you want to be published?

I have not yet been published, but I have outlines for several stories that need fleshing out. I will be published in the next few years!

What are your goals with your writing?

1. Finish one book. 2. Finish the second book...I tend to enjoy the creative process and developing the details more than the actual writing, so I get bored and move on to something else. Obviously, this is no way to complete a novel (or five). I would like to become more structured, develop my craft, finish my stories, and get published.

How will this writers group help you with your writing endeavors?

Accountability. I want someone to help me set goals, deadlines, and review my work with scrutiny in a respectful manner. I hope this group will provide that. I have read many books and generally feel disappointed at the end, because I have so many great stories I want to tell and simply don't connect with the characters in the stories. I believe: “If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.” ― Toni Morrison

Introduction

Aspiring novelist, artist, designer, wife, and future lawyer; I love the craft of writing after years of being a pencil artist. I'm fiercely creative and generally use writing as my outlet; my goal is to publish my 1st novel in the next five years.
