Last week, fellow writer and editor, Amy Parker, called me out in her blog post for the World Book Blog Tour (WBBT). And well she should; I need to write more. Amy is a fantastic (read: award-winning) writer, mom, and wife. She’s written or co-authored close to 20 books. I’d link to her all of her books but I don’t have an extra 2 hours today. But you’re welcome to look her up and say hello. I’m sure she’d love to hear from you.

So, the challenge was to answer some questions about what I do and what I’m working on. Here we go.

What am I working on?

Gosh…what am I not working on. Sigh. I’ll keep it short and vague.

  1. A memoir of a woman who grew up in a cult.
  2. A memoir of an Army veteran who educates others about PTSD.
  3. A memoir of a woman who lost a child and how she walked through the grieving process.
  4. A compilation of musicians’ stories about how they got into the industry.
  5. A business book.
  6. A Southern Gothic novel.
  7. A romance novel.
  8. A book that discusses the crossover in the areas of quantum physics and faith.

…and a few chapters, blogs, book proposals, and whatnot. I’m also in negotiations for 4 ghostwriting projects. Hooray for work!

How does my work differ from others of its genre?

Well, I ghostwrite a lot of memoirs. I’d say that’s what makes my work different.

Why do I write what I do?

I find other people’s lives, passions, and personalities fascinating.

How does my writing process work?

It requires a lot of time, silence, interviews, revisions, trips to the bathroom, snacks, emails, phone calls, track changes, and cursing (sometimes). Oh…and chocolate.

Next stop on the World Blog Book Tour?

Next stop is Shayla Eaton of Curiouser Editing! She writes. She edits. She also bakes (I think). And she lives in Oklahoma. She’s also promised me a Snickers bar if I visit her.

Disclaimer: We’re supposed to tag 3 people. I asked 3 people but the other 2 were/are on deadlines and had to pass. It’s life as usual for wordsmiths. Actually…I’m procrastinating on a book proposal to finish this blog.
