About ME

About me…2015 – Still working on writing and updating my author site . Loving working with other writers and researching new information for my site!

2014 – Writer in progress. I’m currently working on the second draft of a novel that I started many years ago. I am becoming more and more of the writer I am meant to be.

I have been writing since I could own a notebook and fill it with ideas and outlines. I have had a few small pieces published, but currently working on two novels. One is a novel I dreamed about several years ago and is a slow work in progress, but a progress none the less. The 2nd is something that was inspired by NaNoWriMo and I have enjoyed researching material for it so very much. It has become a favoriate piece quickly. I have a couple of options for the finished format.

I turned 40 in 2012 and found a bit of maturity and freedom with that. I don’t feel it’s too late for anything, I feel I can still do anything and want to!

This blog stems from me quitting my stress filled 8 to 5:00 job (last day was Friday, Feb. 15th, 2013), being on call every other week, going home nightly so stressed I couldn’t focus on anything but recapping the day to make it all even more stressful! I filled out a few applications and had a few interviews, had two jobs give me an offer, accepted one and took two weeks off in between. I decided the transition would be ‘living as a writer’ focused. I started this blog about 2 years ago and finally have content 🙂

April, 2013 update. What a crazy roller coaster life is… As you may have read already, I’m currently unemployed. I’m looking for work, I want to work. I want to work at something that makes me happy or at the very least allows me to have more hobbies that make me happy. I am sure I will have more updates soon.

October, 2013 – Embracing the writer side and life is good. Great day job (since July) and writing routine evolving. I’m very happy, yet always evolving 🙂

    Hi, Dana. We are Peter James Lamb’s writing group from a little hamlet in Southeastern PA, and miss him terribly now that he’s moved to Slovenia. Since we’re all fans of his, we wondered about you, also a fan 🙂

    • Hello! Thank you so much for visiting my site and your comment. I found Peter James Lamb on Goodreads and became an instant fan of his perfect real writing. He is very inspirational and I am waiting on his book, the Midlife of Dudley Chalk, to arrive via Amazon! His blog is very interesting to read! I’m currently working on a novel (well, two, but the main one) is about a decision that must be made in the ‘afterlife’. So I’m excited to read about the ‘midlife’. I’m happy to answer any questions you have. Again, thank you so much for your interest.
