This blog will track the success level of one normal, average person’s efforts to make the impossible happen.
After a 25-year career in corporate marketing, I began reinventing myself and my resume so I could seriously pursue my literary dreams. Those dreams were born when I was twelve and began winning prizes for my fiction, and when a play I wrote and produced won a local talent contest. But real life and economic priorities intervened, moving my dreams off to the side.
For the past ten years, I’ve been reordering my circumstances to give the dreams another later-in-life shot. I am now a freelance editor, and my first novel, The Truth About Cinnamon, was published with iUniverse, earning both an Editor’s Choice and a Reader’s Choice designation. My second novel, Separation of Faith, was released in September 2010, again with a coveted Editor’s Choice designation from the publisher. Since release, Separation of Faith has placed in more than a dozen contests and has reached excited readers across the country. And … we’re just getting started!
Through this blog, we’ll see if I can find a way for any of that to become widely known or to make any sort of difference. And I will openly share what works and what doesn’t, which may be of value to other writers whose dreams may be similar to mine.
