I write fiction. Some people write music. Others make movies. There are different ways to express what's in our heads.
But when an artist creates, the work is incomplete until it's shared. When you hear a piece of music or view a painting or read a novel, the moment where you "get it"--that's where the "something" happens. Without an audience, the artist isn't finished.
I'm eternally grateful to all the people who have read my work and told me how much they loved it. Until I started sharing, I think I only got about 10% of the benefit of writing. I love to write, but I never realized that 90% of the satisfaction comes from the knowledge that a reader gave up a few hours in a busy life, just to spend time in your head with you.
I'm coming out with several books this year. If you want to spend some time with me, please sign up for my newsletter and come along for a fun ride!
