Several years ago I decided to write something. After all, I have a college degree and should use it somehow... being a mom of young children only uses your brain so much, then you need to engage it elsewhere. I needed to use my brain more. And I chose writing as an outlet and a challenge. Writing is challenging, as any writer will tell you, it is not easy to keep at it. Especially if you keep at it long enough to actually get published So, I started writing fantasy. Not that I've been a big fantasy fan or anything, I just went with what I learned about in college: Norse Mythology and folklore. Since starting my first novel (a YA fantasy about a girl named Annalena), I've started three other projects, which I'm continuing today in my attempts to learn the craft of writing.
