I needed to read this today.

I actually pulled it off of FB the other day but because I wasn’t feeling too well, I couldn’t come up with anything to say about it.

It pretty well speaks for itself though, doesn’t it.

Writing, as hard as it may sometimes be, is the fun, creative part.

Editing, which is boring and time consuming to me, has slowed me down. I have to force myself to do it and I don’t like forcing myself to do anything. Lol

But, being a writer is what I want to be, so I’ll take the good with the bad.

As much as I fight myself about not doing what needs to be done, I’ll grit my teeth and do it.

Why? Because I believe I am a writer with something to say.

Hello. I am the author of the Historical Fiction novel called Mamie Garrison. It is a tale of slavery, abolition, romance and history, set in the years just prior to the Civil War. It is available on Kindle for .99 and on Kindle Unlimited; also in paperback. Mamie Garrison has a dual storyline. The present day story involves Bella and Andrew finding Mamie's journals. Their story includes romance and paranormal aspects. Mamie's story follows her adventures as an abolitionist through her journals. There are some mysteries as well as an unusual background in Mamie's life. I am 59 and married with one adult child and one grandchild. I have always enjoyed the written word and have been a voracious reader from my early youth. I am inspired by many authors in the historical fiction genre. I am also a lover of Russian literature, particularly Tolstoy and Doestoyefsky. I find great inspiration for creating characters by looking at the ones these two authors have created. There is such a depth to them. I have written for most of my life in one form or another. I have dabbled in poetry and songwriting, and have more started novels than finished ones. In my free time, I like reading, history and travel. I am interested in genealogy and working on my family tree. I live in the Midwest United States with my husband, Chris and my dog, Max.
