Butterfly Swords Release Day

Blog tour: Celebrate release day over at the Ruby-Slippered Sisterhood as fellow sister Shea Berkley hits me with the tough questions.


When I was in ninth grade, my English teacher, Phyllis Molloff, had us write these time capsule letters to ourselves which she returned at the end of our senior year. In it, we wrote what we wanted to accomplish by senior year, but we also wrote about our dreams for the future. To remind ourselves.

I remember writing that I wanted to publish one book in my lifetime. One book on the shelves in bookstores.

I didn’t know anything about publishing or writing careers. I didn’t know that most writers wrote many, many books, one after another. Writing one book seemed like a nearly insurmountable goal to me. But it was a dream so I wrote it down.
