The joy list is many. First there was the huge thrill of seeing my words in print for the first time. It was a moment I’ll never forget. An ongoing benefit is the number of new friends I’ve made in the publishing world. I’ve actually been with the same editor ever since my third book, and I owe much of my success to her editorial input and her faith in my ability to touch the readers with my stories. And I’ve met countless writers, most of which have been both encouraging and helpful and many of whom have become great friends. It constantly amazes me how supportive other writers are and that definitely includes Intrigue writers. And one of the most rewarding aspects of writing is my contact with readers. I can’t imagine that there are more loyal readers than those who follow and continue to buy our Intrigues even in these bad economic times. Thank you. You make this possible and worthwhile.
As for the challenges, well those are far too many to go into here. But let me say that the biggest challenge for me is sitting still long enough to write. Yep, I’m one of those people who love life and want to do everything—travel, play golf, hike, go to lunch with girlfriends, cook, decorate, read and most of all to spend time with family. My grandsons are the light of my life.
So on to writing and working on the next book in the Big D Dad series. Love those cowboys!
