The only thing more rewarding than writing out my dreams in fiction is being a mom. Being a mom is a challenge, but it’s worth it. I’ve learned so much about the history and backstory about “Optimus Prime” from my son Josh, inspiration that I may use in future stories. My daughter Marianne is sometimes coy about being an Elinsen, another element I have used to make the characters in my stories feel more fleshed out. And if I wasn’t at home all of the time looking after the kids, I never would have picked up that old Lovecraft tome at the Trotwood library, “The Call of Cthulhu”, and have been inspired to finally learn to write in the first place. I’m so excited to show people my soul-in-word-form to the world! I’ve tried several literary agents who weren’t interested, but I think they just don’t have a good beat on what people want. We’ll show them, won’t we? ;p
Future self-pubbers of the world unite!
