One baby boy asleep, one toddler resting, a pain killer, and a husband who is giving me a moment to breath equals I finally am getting to my post. The great news is I made it before Saturday if you use Mountain Standard Time. I think I deserve an A for posting this week after a very rough birth and lot of adjusting. Okay – sure I would love a pat on the back.
Now onto the Fun Fact. Along my journey to become an Author I have found some inspiring people. Whether they are or are not on the New York Times Best Sellers list or just doing great at a small publisher, the world is full of wonderful writers sharing their imaginations. Have you ever wondered when or why some authors ever started to write? Well I did and so I asked.
Meet Author Sue Fineman. She has inspired me to write more. She has put out 25 books in a very small amount of time. You shouldn’t have a hard time finding something of hers to read!
Why did she start to write? Well real life of course.
I started writing in my mid-fifties
I didn’t start out to write anything. My hobby had always been sketching
house plans. We’d moved so many times over the years I had a pretty good
idea what I’d want in a house. So one day after I’d quit my day job
selling real estate, I sketched this plan, then wondered who’d live
there and what their story might be. And I started writing.
I’d intended to write a short story about this woman’s journey, but it
turned into a full size romance novel with a little mystery. Since I’d
never written a story, let alone a whole book, I knew it wasn’t very
good. Over the years I revised it several times, wrote a couple sequels,
and put them all back on the shelf. Many years later, when I was running
out of room on the shelf, I submitted my first book.
The Mitchell Money in 2011. Now I have 25 novels and a couple
short stories published and another five-book series in the works.
In the past month I’ve published the four books in the Winfield Killer
series – The Bartender’s Killer, Her Sister’s Killer, The Con Man Killer,
and The Lady Killer. This is my fourth series, and I’m in the process of
writing another series about the MacKendrick Brothers of Seattle. All my books are available on Barnes & Noble (for the Nook) and Amazon (for the Kindle).
If Sue’s go getter attitude doesn’t get you motivated to read or pursue your dream – well then, I am guessing you are exhausted reading about her crazy energy and writing. Go Sue!
