I have always been a Closet Author and never had the courage to put my stories out there. Now, as I've gotten older I've come to realize that if I want any kind of success in life, there will always be risks involved. My favorite quote of all is from Henry Ford:
"Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right."
I've also learned that some people will enjoy what I've written and some won't. And hey, that's okay.
I also love to read and do not really have one favorite author. Depending on my mood and what genre I'm into at the time, my favs vary from Kristen Ashley (steamy romance) to Dean Koontz (paranormal horror).
My biggest obstacle, when it comes to writing, is my own imagination. I have so many ideas for different stories that I have a hard time finishing my current series. When I'm writing about zombies, I'm thinking of vampires. When I'm writing about vampires, I'm thinking about witches. I have so many unfinished stories sitting on my computer and not enough time in the day to complete them. If anything happens to my laptop, I'm in trouble...
