As a young girl, I always dreamed of writing novels or writing for my city’s local paper. Every day, I told my friends that someday, they would see my name in the newspaper on the front page. They would generally laugh or make comments about my head being in the clouds. After hitting a hurdle in high school, I thought I would never be an author, columnist, or journalist. I am so thankful for the opportunity to chase my educational goals while I was down, due to my cancer treatment and aftermath.
My Education Goals
However, I returned to high school and graduated in 2006. Next, I signed up to take a course with the Institute of Children’s Literature. I earned my certificate for Writing for Teenagers and Children in late 2006. Now, I have earned an Associate’s Degree in Arts of Business in 2008, as well as a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications in 2011. For the past 15 years, I have been writing short stories, poems, and have written several novels that I am working on now. I am also writing stories and articles for different magazines and books like Guideposts.
It is a Way of Life
Journalism and columnist jobs require that the employee to be available on a moment’s notice, especially when news is breaking around town. However, I am a twelve year cervical cancer stage 2B survivor, who had aggressive treatment to become cancer free. I am disabled, so I cannot chase stories to become a major journalist. So, I have two blogs that I am using as a column and publishing several articles and stories on different subject matter.
Writing is My Passion
I love writing, so now I write articles for my blogs or I write for magazines as well. Additionally, I am writing an articles and novels now full time. I am a new author when it comes to novels, but I am determined to continue writing. Thankfully, I am very versatile in my writing, so I have three novels coming out which are different genres. I have already publish two small books, a poetry collection and a short stories book for children.
It is a Career
I love meeting new readers and fans, especially as my writing grows and I continue writing things about this I love writing about. I love knowing that my fans and readers enjoy my work, so if you stop by my blogs. Take a moment to leave a comment or even just say HI. Each day is a new day to bring my readers new ideas, stories, and more. Thank you for supporting me in my career choice and I hope you enjoy my future writings.
