As an only child, I had plenty of time to people watch and make things up. When I didn’t think I could make a living at the latter, my love of people led me to a BA in Psychology instead. A few years and three kids later, I discovered the thrill of writing. Writing lets me harness my seemingly endless supply of energy and enthusiasm and create something of value in the wake.
I’m excited to have a place where I can journal my progress, failures and all. Getting a manuscript published is a labor of love, a test of skill, character and fortitude. I write, and read, and edit, and fret. It’s become evident to me that this endeavor must be chronicled. So, here it is. This is my journey, my Musings From The Slush.
I started my writing career in 2012 with Turquoise Morning Press who allowed me to be a part of both their Summer Shorts & the Men In Uniform Anthologies. Later, my debut novella Bloom launched their new line of Honey Creek books and my Seeds of Love series. I cannot thank them enough.
I’ve kept writing and learning and failing and trying from day 1. I’m far too hardheaded to give up, and the work is paying off, but for me it’s a slow trek, not a speedy rocket ride. I’m incredibly thankful for that. Since 2012, I’ve published many novels with other publishers like Carina Press, Harlequin Worldwide Mystery, Lyrical Press (Kensington), and Merit Press. My newest venture is a cozy mystery series with Crooked Lane Books where I will write as Julie Chase.
