“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”

Albert Einstein.

I started writing creatively when I was 10 years old and haven’t stopped since. True, many of the snippets I’ve written are hidden in a bottom drawer or long discarded. But others have started off as teeny, tiny ideas in the middle of the night and grown into enormous, fantastical worlds and full length novels.

I’ve learned many things on my writing journey, but three stick in my mind and guide my writing every day:

  • Get your idea down on paper/iPad as soon as it pops into your head. Whether it’s 4am or in the middle of an important meeting, write it down.
  • Share your writing with others. Having the courage to get critique from fellow writers in a local writing group could be your first big step forward. Fantastic mentors and patient writing friends are essential.
  • Don’t listen to that dopey voice in your head that says you can’t do it. Put the doubt in time out.

I hope the stories I tell will resonate with readers of all ages and I’d love to hear from you. Want to talk about books, reading, writing, science fiction, fantasy, YA fiction? Me too. Let’s chat.
