I've been reading romance novels for as long as I can remember – I just never thought I'd be writing them. In fact, I graduated from university with a business degree and started working in the Finance Department of Environment Canada... shudder. A few years into my career, my hubby, who's a meteorologist, got posted up north, population 800. I quit my job and went with him. At first all the spare time was great, and then I got bored so I started to read. Day and night. When I ran out of books to read I decided to try writing one. After all, how hard could it be? Ha!! Well, you guessed it. It was hard!
Many years later I discovered Romance Writers of America and have learned a great deal since joining my local chapter. My journey to publication hasn't been smooth sailing, but with the support and guidance from the wonderful writers at RWAC, it's been a lot easier. And a lot more fun!
I'm very fortunate to have a husband and two children who have been supportive in every possible way. On those frustrating days when I'm banging my head against my desk I look up to see a heart shaped sticky note on my computer that says 'I love you because you naver give up.' Yes, it says ‘naver.’ That wasn't a typo. A few years back, when my daughter was eight, she stuck that note to my computer. I told her she spelled never wrong so she scribbled it out. So technically the note now says, I love you because you give up!! LOL!!! But I love it so much I won't let her take it down to change it.
