Sitting in my finished walkout basement on 3 November 2014, I received a text message from a friend: “Are you doing anything for NaNoWriMo?”
Unsure if he had mis-typed or was having a stroke, I asked for clarification. “National Novel Writing Month,” he typed. I had never heard of it, so I looked into it: the challenge to write a 50k word novel in the month of November. Hmm. I’ve always had a weakness for irrational deadlines…
Twenty-three days later, I had an awful manuscript of about 52k words. Awful. But still, I had seen something while creating it. I caught a glimpse of entire world filled with interesting people. I wanted to know more. So I kept typing. And typing. To-date I’ve been blessed to write down seven novels, one novella, one short story collection, and one children’s early reader. And my American Imperium Trilogy will be released in just a few weeks, followed by audiobooks in the early months of 2021.
What an amazing half-dozen years I have had. And thank all of you for reading along. Cheers!
