I’ve written two novels, Debris, a commercial fiction, and Life as a Teenage Mutant, a gritty coming of age story. I’m actively seeking agent representation for both. Oddly, it’s not as easy as one might think. This is a tough business.
Although I’ve written short stories and magazine articles that have been published or awarded, I won’t feel satisfied until I have my novels in print. Self-publishing won’t do for me I’m afraid. I want an agent and a publisher and I want them to want me. It might be ego or vanity. The need to be accepted could be a deep-seeded issue created from something I’m sure my therapist would say was rooted in childhood. Regardless of my reasons why, the need is as real as the fingers that type the story out on the keyboard. It doesn’t come without hard work though, and writing the story is just the very beginning of the journey. I’ve created the blog to keep you posted on my path to becoming a first-time novelist. I’ve also included some odd-ball things about my family and my life out here in the boonies.
Thanks for checking in and for reading. It’s great to have you here. It is also great to have the pressure of knowing you are out there…waiting. Like a stalker…like a crazed fan.
Yes – I will make a great “famous person”. I am narcissistic and delusional!
Thanks for keeping me moving towards the light regardless of my fear of rejection!
“Life as a Teenage Mutant” or “Beautiful Mess” (title pending) is a gritty coming of age story set in the eighties. Yes – there will indeed be bad hairstyles and cherry-bombs.
“Debris” is the dissection of a family. A contemporary fiction told in multiple narrative, it surrounds the secrets of the four family members lives that are tangled in abuse and addiction.
