I am a writer. I am a writer in the sense that writing is my primary focus. It is how I want to spend my days, it is the career I am trying to build.

The first step was to write poorly. That step was repeated many times, but in private. Now I think I am starting to write better stories, stories that other people might be interested in reading.

It is time for me to come out from the shadows of unshared manuscripts, to step forward into the light holding a stack of pages and say, “I wrote this and I would love for you to read it and tell me what you think.”

Bottom line(s): I am an aspiring author, primarily in the romance genre so far, who is sending out some manuscripts to publishers. I work largely in isolation, and so would be very happy to connect with people online.
