Where It All Began

Well, hello there! You found me.
Like my novel, this blog is a work in progress so bear with me as I learn my way around.

A little about myself. I've been writing off and on since I can remember. Most of my writing as a kid consisted of making up stories and comic strips about my stuffed animals, Ellie (who really belonged to my brother) and Marie. As I got older journal writing, a little poetry, and prayer letters replaced the stories.

I've alway loved reading children's literature and often prefer it to adult fiction. After discovering Harry Potter and devouring the first 4 books, I found friends online who shared my obsession. Discussing and speculating, while waiting for the last 3 books to be released was a blast and reawakened my love of writing.

About a year and a half ago I decided to seriously think about writing my own novel. Through different agent/editor/author blogs I've been slowly learning about writing and the publishing business and so far it hasn't scared me enough to quit. I started 2 stories which I haven't finished and probably won't. I'm currently working on a contemporary upper MG (middle grade) novel with the working title, Nitpicky which I hope to finish by the end of the year.
