How did I get started writing?
Naturally, reading has always been a big part of my life, and I started crafting fairy stories as a child. My career path as a journalist was mapped out, but I had some lessons in the unexpected nature of life, and was diverted from my true calling.
It wasn't until I matured that I rediscovered the joy of reading and writing. I've dabbled in sci-fi, fantasy and short stories, but my real love is suspense. I can't imagine why. <wink>
An active involvement in the literary community is vital to replenishing my motivation and keeping me abreast of industry changes. So, I attend conferences, workshops and book launches, and sometimes judge romance writing contests.
I am a strong believer that you receive what you send into the world, which is why I formed the Novelist’s Circle group in 2010.It provides a nurturing environment where fiction novelists share information, motivate one another, improve technical skills and participate in critiquing.
