There’s always been a soft spot in my heart for fiction. A love for writing naturally grew out of my love for reading. I have had a passion for writing stories most of my life. Fairly recently, my passion for stories has expanded to a passion for theology, apologetics, and ecclesiology. They are fascinating subjects for me as I continue to figure out exactly what I believe and why. I am eager to share my discoveries with people as I glean from the knowledge of other writers I respect. Finally, I enjoy writing about my writing process. I informally share my experiences as I complete my second novel. I share my frustrations, my triumphs, my shortcomings, and all that I learn from other writers as I stumble through the field of my dreams.
I am looking for encouragement, critique and support as I finish my second novel. I naively self-published my first novel, and I was not at all happy with the results. Before the end of this year, I'd like to send my completed second novel to a major publishing company through an agent. As I am very new to the process, I am looking to connect with others who are either more experienced than me, or are traveling along a similar path.
I am a reading teacher and a graduate student in my late 20s. I believe that hopes are made to be fulfilled and dreams are made to come true.
I am a teacher at a community college, and I am a novelist. I self published one book 2 years ago, and I am working on a second that I want to send to a "real" publisher.
I am looking forward to getting to know everyone, and to read their literary works.
