Fulfilling the Dream of Becoming a Writer

    As a wife and working mother of three, a son and two daughters, I know what it is like to put a dream on hold and devote oneself entirely to the care of family.  I suppose it's what most of us parents do at one time or another.

    Growing up, I knew that I wanted to be a writer. In college, I choose a liberal arts major, English literature, for that same purpose, to be a writer. Yet, when I graduated from college, and entered graduate school, I chose Public Administration as my graduate course of study, a subject that I was not passionate about. I chose it because I thought it would be a more practical course of study.

    I married my college sweetheart, and we had three children.  I entered the IT field a few days before the Y2K scare. Hence, I seemed to be moving even farther away from my creative writing aspiration.

    I was happy to put my husband and children first. Still, I always thought about my dream of being a writer. So, in 2002, I took my first steps towards writing a novel. It was not easy with my schedule. Yet, it was fun, so I found a way. Through the grace of God, it happened. I completed my first novel, Sojourner's Dream, in 2006.

    My second book, Lamentation of a Warrior, took one year, however. I had compiled information, tools, and methods which greatly shortened the time it took to write my second novel.

    I would like to share what I've learned with aspiring writers who want to contribute to the world in a positive way through their writing. It is for that reason that I developed Journey to Writer, an eCourse. Here is more information about it:
