I write because I love it. IT was never really my thing but now, for the first time in my life, I actually enjoy sitting in front of a computer all day.
Once I started writing, I found myself setting and achieving more and more challenging goals. #1, finish a novel. #2, write a second novel to prove the first one wasn't a fluke. #3, get published. Now I'm left with #4, earn an income writing and #5, write something amazing.
My first 2 novels, Starting Over and Life's Journeys, have been published. I'm seeking publication on number #3, Confessions of an Aging Adulturer and a true, hopefully humorous, account of my recent 8 month camping trip around Australia's Outback.
I've had several short stories published in a variety of formats and I keep working away at more.
