I should have been on these opportunities like white on rice, but I wasn’t. It took me years to ever contact that editor again. Success came so easily the first time out of the gate and I was so green that I thought it would always be that way.
There’s a line from the movie Sister Act II that has stuck with me since I heard it:
If you wake up in the morning, and you can’t think of anything but singing. Then you should be a singer.
Well I can’t sing. Not even a little. Not even if my life depended on it. But writing and storytelling is my singing. Since I was little girl, I’ve been telling stories. Before I could read or write I was making up stories, especially with my Barbies.
My upcoming novel, Whisky Kisses, is the love story of Wilder Mann and Serenity Breedlove. Wilder is nothing more than a one night stand for Serenity. But for Wilder, Serenity is a forever kind of lady because she didn't care about his stage persons, but the real him. There are so many obstacles in the way of their forever. Is his fame too much for her? Will their love be strong enough to survive her ruining his longest friendship?
