Thankful for You Hop

This is a thank you to my fans, the people who have made my dream come true. I am now writing full time. I’ve written since I was a little girl. No one read any of that, it was only for me for two reasons – 1) it wasn’t good enough to share and 2) I was too scared to share it even when I thought it was good.

Gradually I grew some courage (thanks Hubby) and began to share (sparingly) and eventually because at least some people liked my stories, I did really put myself out there. I admit I have a tendency to write what I wanted to read and couldn’t find—Strong Women. I’d read too many stories in the “too stupid to live” category and I knew women weren’t really like that. I had too many role models that proved my point. So I decided to concentrate on those stories that cropped up in my mind. You’ll see that more often than not it’s my heroines who save the bacon of my heroes, or at least share equally in the task.

  1. Didn’t you have a little sister? Don’t think your early work wasn’t read by anyone – ha! So glad you get to write full time. I hope to some day!

  2. I’m thankful that…I’ve finally moved to a new house! :)) It’s been a long time coming because of the delays to construction in the past two years, but phew. Wouldn’t have survived the move without the seriously rockin’ people in my life.

    Awesome on taking the leap and now being able to call yourself a full-time writer!

  3. I am grateful that we were able to paint the dining room just in time for the holidays. Congrats on becoming a full time author!

  4. I am thankful that my surgeries went well and I am still walking, for my husband and daughters, and for authors that give me an escape from chronic pain with their books. Thank you for being an author!

    • I’m happy that the surgeries went well and I hope you continue to improve. I’m especially glad you can escape into books and if I contribute to that, I’m humbled. Thank you.
