IN DEFENSE OF LATE BLOOMERS

I love reading stories of people who found success later in life. They prove that there is no expiration date on a person’s dreams.

I’m not one of those writers who can say they always wanted to become a published author. When I was younger, I loved to read but never thought about writing my own stories. The worlds I created lived in my head. I was happy letting them stay there.

Over the years, I’ve tried many creative pursuits and enjoyed them all, but I never felt such a earth tipping love as when I started to write. All those crazy ideas I dreamt up finally had an outlet. Through hard work and hundreds of hours in front of the computer, I found success. My first book, HOME FIELD, will be traditionally published this summer. Book two, TRUE HORIZON, is next.

Last week, I celebrated my 44th birthday. I didn’t start writing until after I’d turned 40. I am a late bloomer and proud of it!
