I wanted to let you know about a very important decision I have made. I have decided to transition out of writing novels. It wasn’t an easy choice to make and quite frankly, it has been on my mind for almost a year.
I have always loved writing. When I was a young girl, I would write stories and poems and on and on. When I became an adult, I kept on writing. I’ve often heard the saying, “Find something you love to do and you’ll never work a day in your life.” I love writing and it has never felt like work or a job. However, recently I have found my focus and my heart changing.
Some people may say that I was never really successful at novel writing and so I am giving up. This isn’t true. A year ago, I was introduced to a screenwriting program and almost immediately I was hooked. In the past year, I have adapted three of my novels for film, outlined another brand new story, and written a TV pilot with my sister. Every time I sit down to write…I end up writing screenplays.
And so…I’m embarking on an even more competitive venture where my chances of success are even lower than in novel writing. With novels, when my publisher went out of business and I parted ways with my agent, I had the option to publish my books independently. In the world of screenwriting, I can’t just go out and produce my own movie if I can’t find a production company or a manager. It won’t be an easy road but I am very excited about the possibilities.
I have one novel ready to publish. It is called “Somewhere in Between.” There is another that is over half finished that I plan on publishing in the near future. Right now I’m calling it, “Roswell,” but it’s just a working title at this point. I will keep you updated when these books are released and can be purchased through Amazon.
I want to thank you all for your support and patronage over the years. I’m so honored that you allowed me into your lives and loved my books as much as I did.
Hopefully someday soon, you’ll be able to go to a movie theater or turn on your television and watch one of my stories on the screen.
