My first book has been published. Now I have to do what? I've learned that creating a story and having it published is only the beginning.

Background Information

I actually began to write after several years of journaling. I desperately needed emotional healing and writing became my strength. You could say it was my way of escape. It has been a very long journey, at times extremely difficult. I began to write poetry, this way I could really express myself. Many of my poems were published in the local paper.

After a short period I put my writings aside for several years. I wasn't quite sure why, maybe the timing wasn't right. Last year I realized that I should pursue the talent that God had given me. I once again began to create a story, populate it with characters, and act out the ideas that were buzzing around in my head. This is my first book, but certainly not my last. After I complete the book I am currently working on, I plan to venture out and write on a personal level. I want to reach out to comfort, encourage and uplift. God has blessed me in this area as well. This is a ministry, a calling in which I feel that I must acknowledge. I will also continue to write for children. However, through Journaling, I have become more confident in writing and will use it as a guide for my new life. Not only to transition but to make sense of the change.

Birth Place
Savannah, GA USA

I wrote a christmas play for the children at church. Entered a contest to write a very short, true to life, story that would capture the interest of children. I was offered to work under the Dean at the Institute of Children's Literature. I thought,if I could accomplish that, I could certainly write a story or two, which I did. One of which has just been published, some twenty eight years later.

Additional Information

In Nov. I participated in the Savannah Children's Book Festival. It was a learning experience. Beginning in Jan. 2008, I will be going to several schools and libraries. People are beginning to call me, and this is so rewarding and exciting.
