24 Days of Christmas Author Showcase

Day Eleven - Me

So, it's the eleventh day of the showcase and I feel really honored to be invited. I typically don't do many blog-hops or or author take-overs, because I feel a little silly saying too much about myself. What I can say is that I love, love, love writing and interacting with my readers. I enjoy getting emails and answering questions, especially from teens who are developing a new passion for books or maybe even writing. I still remember how much I loved reading and writing stories of my own, growing up. I started so many books but then gave up on them, wondering why I was wasting my time. I'd never completed a chapter, let alone an entire book, until I decided to write one for fun in 2011; one that was inspired by my own children. Oh, and zombies. I'd just seen a movie called Zombieland (what a cool movie!) and knew that I had to throw them into the mix. Anyway, all I really wanted to do was write a book and give it to my kids, the following Christmas, as a tribute to them. Something we could laugh about one day. Well, when I showed the story to a friend of mine, she talked me into sharing it with others and I took the plunge. I published it on Amazon and, frankly, couldn't believe the reviews. They were pretty darn good. I mean, there were a couple of bad ones because I hadn't hired an editor at that time, but the reviews on the story itself were enough to make me continue writing. Well, it pretty much changed my life, because in 2013, I was able to quit my job and became a full-time writer. It's been a dream come true and I feel so grateful to everyone who's helped me along the way, especially my readers. It just goes to show that if you have a passion for something, it just might be your destiny. You just never know...

This brings me to my giveaway. I'm offering the complete set of Zombie Games (all 5 Ebooks). This series holds a special place in my heart. Not only did the first book spark a renewed passion for writing, it made me realize that I could step out of my comfort zone and share it with others. It also made me realize that my imagination is pretty freaken strange at times. Anyway, I hope that you enjoy reading the series as much as I enjoyed writing it!
