Am i an intimidating person
I get incredulous looks from people and the often heard, "You've written all these books? I've written them and self published them..24 months I've published 24 books, plus one young reader book, so actually 25 books in 24 months.And I have three additional novels nearly ready to be put out there in Book World. I didn't write them all last year, or the year before. That's what gives this a somewhat surreal aspect to people just discovering me.I happen to have a 25-year old daughter who has been writing since first grade when she wrote a story that floored her teacher- Harold, The Shoe.We mentor and support one another, writing at the kitchen table seated across from one another, reading each other's stories, proofreading and editing one another's work. In a nutshell- I have been writing since childhood.I've been an editor of a college literary magazine and contributing writer.I was first published in the real world in 1994, a children's story I'd written for Kelly (Monsters No More), then a personal memoir in a local literary/arts newspaper that no longer exists (Snow Dance), and in a magazine in the UK (Teddy Bear Review).Or that they would like a less confident girl because they dont know how to act around a confident one.
If i like a guy i have no problem walking up to him and asking him out or to make the first moves and all.
I can talk about sports, movies, series, politics, cars, comics, fashion anything really.
