My not so new passion of writing

Two and a half years ago I was headed into bed rest while 8 months pregnant with my son. It was not something I was looking forward to as I have a hard enough time sitting still for a two hour movie let alone for days upon days. That is about the time my mother came to me with an idea of a story she had been working on. It was rough and basic and scribbled out in a ratty spiral notebook. “I want you to take this and make it awesome” she said to me. At first I was a little surprised unsure what “awesome” would entail. I had weeks of nothing but lying on my back ahead of me so I figured I could get at least “good” hammered out in that amount of time. I was intrigued that my mom had actually devoted the time to write out a storyline. I have to admit this was a little out of character for her, but I was proud of her for doing it. After reading the story I found it had potential and was excited to have a project that we could work on together. Don’t all girls want to write a novel with their mom? I did! And so, Prophecy: The Dove: Book One of the Legend was born. My month-long bed rest actually only ended up being a week before Will was tired of lying around (he gets it from me) and decided he was ready to be a part of this world. By that time I had already accepted the book challenge with full devotion and there would be no stopping. Writing is the perfect thing to do during the many nap times a newborn–toddler needs.

It has been two and half years of free time and weekends but now I can officially say book one is done. The story is a five part saga dealing with growing up, love, betrayal, demons, loss, magic and the “what ifs”. If you have stumbled onto my site I am THRILLED. Welcome and visit me often. Soon I will post excerpts from the book, artwork and my frustrating journey through self-publishing.
