All my life I've had this burning need to create something, anything. As a child my cousin and I would put our paper dolls against the sliding glass door and design entirely new wardrobes for them. When I was 11 I started making clothes and I loved doing it. I did that for many years, even designing and creating new clothes for my daughter without patterns. I made her clothes from the remnant pile at the fabric store. I even made coats for myself and men's pants for my husband. Eventually I got burned out and needed to move on to something else.
All during this time, I always tried to write. I envisioned myself writing the "Great American Novel". I attempted to do that several times, but just couldn't seem to get there. Even tried to turn one of them into a screenplay. So I became a web designer and wrote web content and blogs and articles under many different screen names for many years. But that got old too.
About 8 years ago I became a jewelry designer and tried just about every different type of jewelry making. I became a metalsmith. I did chainmaille, beading, soldering, etching, you name it, I did it. I love jewelry and loved making it. I loved everything about it. Touching it, looking at it, every aspect of it, but eventually that didn't hold my interest either.
So you might call me a dilettante. Yes I'm a dabbler. But I always come back to writing. It seems to be my passion. It is the one thing that I've never burned out on. So I decided to finally write that book. But this time I realized that I'm just not a fiction kind of gal. They always say write what you know. One day I was giving a girlfriend advice about a man she was having a problem with and it occurred to me what I should write about. I decided to write about all of my failed relationships and how others could avoid the problems I encountered. I've gained a lot of insight and hope I can help others. So my first book was born. I did a lot of research on how to publish your book on Amazon and finally did it.
