My Creative Life.

I have rarely felt this alive. Writing this thriller, this story pulled from what I wish to read, is having an effect I had not imagined, it’s deepening my understanding of people, of how we act and react to trauma. In my process of creating this fictitious world, I have had to do plenty of research, on a variety of topics, from things like car models to pine tree air fresheners and speaking at a University, or the trauma of this event, that situation, so on and so forth. I… Read more My Creative Life.

Becoming the Writer I Dreamed.

I began write a couple of years ago in regards to my memoirs, but the fact of the matter is that I had been writing for quite some time, usually notes, descriptions for my paintings or putting down memories. I was an artist, a paintress for decades before ever imagining I could really write. Then, I decided I just had to write my memoirs and I wasn’t sure of myself or my skills, which I admit, were not too professional. So I hired a co-writer of sorts, someone with the… Read more Becoming the Writer I Dreamed.

Promoting an extraordinary editor and writer.

Dawn Renee Greer helped me with my memoirs which have now been picked up by a traditional publisher, so if you require editing help, check out The Purple Semicolon. Thanks to Dawn, my writing career has taken off and I am now writing my first thriller. So, if you are wanting quality editing, you might want to get in touch with her at: The Purple Semicolon. I know she came through for me in as big way.

Writing my Thriller novel.

After I wrote my memoirs “Breaking Free:45 Years In The Wrong Body”, I wasn’t sure if I would go on to write anything else as I had not really entertained the notion that I was a real writer, but then something changed in me. People began telling me how what I had written touched them, that they couldn’t put my book down, then I read the reviews of my book on Amazon, I was blown away by the positive comments and I began to feel encouraged, motivated even. I also… Read more Writing my Thriller novel.

Feeling Fortunate, and Thankful.

Sometimes I just can’t believe how fortunate I am, I’m not saying life has been easy as it evidently has looked more like a roller-coaster ride for me than a simply walk in the proverbial park. Yet here I am being signed to a contract with a traditional publisher, yes you read me right, I am with Brainspired Publishing, exclusive publishers of LGBTQ+ authors in a variety of genres. At present, I am collaborating with them, taking a fresh look at the cover, then we’ll move on to editing and… Read more Feeling Fortunate, and Thankful.

A Storyteller is Born.

As I take on a new story, not about something as intimate and familiar as a memoir or even a book representing my art but instead I chose fiction, and while I am not ready to go in depth about the plot, I can say that it’s going to be a thriller. The protagonist, a character created out of whole cloth yet with aspects I am close to in that she is queer and a woman of trans origin, everything else about her will have to wait for when the… Read more A Storyteller is Born.

From Paintress to Writer.

So far in this new adventure in writing, I have over the past two years gotten my memoirs completed as well as adding the finishing touches on my art book.This is as I mention, new to me. I expertise, what I have done professionally since the early eighties was drawing and painting though it goes back much further. Over the past few years I began to feel less enthusiastic vis-à-vis painting, felt I had done what I set out to do since 2001 and just needed to explore a different… Read more From Paintress to Writer.
