I've had a love for writing since I was a small child, never really putting much thought into it. Instead my focus was on singing. As the assistant director of a children's performing group, I loved working with kids. I also loved entertaining them. Eventually I pulled out f the music industry to focus on my family.
After my teenage daughter and I were done reading the Twilight series we were hungry for more so off to the book stores we went. Time after time we would return home empty handed and sad. We just couldn't find anything that fit the description we were looking for. It seemed the books available were either too graphic for my teen daughter to read (or me for that matter) or they were sexually explicit which I didn't like either. If you're a reader then you know that awful feeling that comes at the end of a good book or book series. You know the end has come and it's time to set off looking for more. It's a very dissapointing thing when you come home empty handed.
I'm a go getter. I was a highschool drop out and teenage mom. I don't let negative things in my life stand in my way. I pulled my boot straps up and raised my daughter the best I could. I also went back to school when I was in my early twenties and got my diploma. If I could do all the other things I had done, I surely wasn't going to sit around defeated about not having anything good to read. My husband had been telling me that I was going to write a book for weeks. I thought he was insane but the more he said it the more I wondered... was he right? Well he was. After one night of brainstorming, Ice Moon was born. It was never my intention to get it published. I let a few friends read it and a few quickly turned into more. One friend ended up suggesting I get a Facebook fanpage to keep the approx. 20 something people updated on my writing. I thought she was silly but I had to admit that it sure would be an easy way to do just that. Those original twenty-something followers turned into 200, in 20 countries, as of today. As the numbers crept up, the more I considered making my book availabe to the public. Now, it is.
I wrote Ice Moon for my daughter. I am proud to be able to share it with anyone else who would like to read it.
