I was inspired to write a book because: I always wanted to write a book since I wrote my first story at 14 years old. I never had time until I started teleworking due to COVID. I heard a song on the Soundscapes channel in early June, and a story about a past life was revealed to me. The more I played the song, the more my story unfolded. After I stopped crying, I started writing. This is the first of a three-book series.
Favorite time/place to write: I love to write on my back porch, or my home office, early in the morning or late in the evening, listening to music.
Future plans as an author: I currently have four more books in draft form.
What I learned from the writing/publishing process: It is easier now than it was about 20 years ago. All of your research can be done online. I have learned that writing is my passion, and for as long as I can, I will be creating some story in my mind to put on paper.
My advice for those trying to write a book: Do your research online. Compare the top 10 publishing companies. I am self-published, but used a publishing company.
