I epublished my first book, Born of Water, in 2012. It was a great experience. It was a learning experience.
The learning really began several years before that when I enrolled in two adult-ed creative writing and novel writing courses. They taught me a lot about how I never want to see a writing course taught! That idea, solving the puzzle of how I would teach a writing course that met the needs and questions I had as a budding fantasy writer, stayed with me for years.
During that time, I published first one book, then a series. I challenged myself to write better books faster, and wrote 4 1/2 books in a year. A whole series plus! I’ve taken classes, asked experts, and learned from experience. And now I finally have solved the riddle of how I would help others learn the art of writing and how to be a successful published author!
