About the Author:
My love of reading stories began as a young girl. I read my first romance novel decades ago, and I was hooked. Seriously. I still am. And although I have not always been a writer, I’ve always been a reader. I encourage writers everywhere to keep their love of reading during the “process” of writing.
No matter what genre I read, I always come back to romance stories as my absolute favorite. There’s nothing like that one book that stays on your mind long after you’ve read the ending. But that’s the entire point of writing in this genre I suppose, to create characters that stay on your mind and your heart, to bring on the falling in part of love and all that comes with it: wrong choices, complications, miscommunication, and loads of heartbreak.
Advice to you if you’re starting out on your writing journey? Write each day, even if it’s only a sentence. So much of writing is just doing it. Just write. Just give those characters in your mind a story to tell. I worked in educational research for the National Assessment of Educational Progress where I developed training materials for national studies for years before I began writing. Then I had my children. There was no time for much of anything. However, between the two, I started writing early in the morning (since I was up anyway) and fed my creative outlet. Motherhood, careers, college, and whatever life throws at you can coexist if you want to pursue writing. – Emily
