I feel like a kid on Christmas ! Writing makes my heart so happy 😁
I started my writing with picture books. My imagination has always pulled me in this direction. Until one day, I realized my one picture book needed plenty more words than allowed. This then inspired me to write my first ever middle grade chapter book!
This decision was completely out of my comfort zone, but I completed it and never felt so accomplished! Only a few short months later, my publisher made my heart burst! She told me she wanted to publish it! I never felt so reassured that writing is in my blood and this was what I was meant to do!
Fast forward to a few days ago, I had a name pop in my head. This name haunted me! I couldn’t get it out of my head, which told me, it needed to be my next book. I of course assumed it would be another middle grade chapter book. I allowed this assumption to consume my every thought. Unfortunately, I couldn’t figure out an idea! It was driving me nuts !
Well…… I don’t know if anyone believes in psychics or mediums…. but…. I felt drawn to reach out to one. She decided to tell me that I would write a very successful suspense thriller series. If anyone knows me, they know I am obsessed with suspense thrillers! I just never saw myself as writing one. I always said, I am not smart enough to come up with an idea that has twists and turns and mystery. After that conversation, I still was convinced that I was going to write another middle grade book.
Then I thought about that name again …. it replayed and replayed and replayed in my head. It honestly exhausted me mentally! And then….
The AHAAAAAAA moment happened! An idea sparked in my mind … with that name… but an idea for a suspense thriller!!! Now listen, I may have had what the psychic suggested still in my mind, but it lit a fire under me! Once I thought of the idea, I convinced myself it could only be one book. There was no way I could turn this into a series.
I started to write down all of my ideas and outline each chapter. And guess what? Your girl now has an entire idea for a series! I lit up! I called my husband, bouncing off the walls with my ideas! He was just as excited as I was!
I am always very passionate about my writing, but this series I am about to embark on… I think has me more excited than anything I have created thus far. I don’t know if it is because I thought this would be impossible… or if this idea really will excite others who read it!
Look out world !!! Suspense thriller series is coming at ya!
Now back to writing …..
