My journey of publishing a book ~

THE CARETAKER, my first novel was published this month. What a long journey it has been.

Years ago I made a decision that I would not die with regrets. And I knew if I didn’t  at least attempt to write a novel that it would be the biggest disappointment of my life.

I found Judy Bridges’ Shut up & Write class. That’s where the real work began. Judy was instrumental in helping with my first nonfiction book The Spirit of Archetypes: Cards of Spiritual Guidance.

And yet I had all these characters chatting away in my head, and writing about them was the only way to get them out. I took her Round Table class and began writing scenes that became chapters.

Very basic and not very good. I moved to Madison and learned how to improve those scenes under the tutelage of  Laurel Yourke.
