Getting out on the road

When I started this blog I was still in the early legs of my own journey. We'll call it step one: Planning for the trip. In order to figure out how to get onto the road, I interviewed author friends who had already made the journey. I wanted to tell their stories to give myself, and others hope that this writing thing can happen, it's not impossible, and you don't have to be a celebrity.

But on a very happy, lift your feet of the ground and float on air day in November I took my first steps out the door and into the car. I got the call. The one where the answer was not, "Sorry, not for me." It's amazing how one yes can wipe out five years of nos. So now thanks to the call from Jennifer De Chiara, and my agent, Linda Epstein, this blog/website can be about me. About my journey down the road to publication.

I hope you enjoy my ride.
