ann-black-white-01 Q1) When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

Even though I wrote my first story when I was in middle school, I didn’t give much thought to being a writer until college. The Romance Writers of America (RWA) held a conference a few miles from the college I was attending and one of my sorority sisters went. She returned to campus very excited, telling us all about the conference.

    • Thanks for the trip over to Don’s blog. While there, how about signing up for a spot if you haven’t already. I’d love to read more about your writing background.

  1. Thanks Ann. I didn’t know Don had a sign up for interviews. I just had 7 done in the past two weeks! I was blessed to be asked to guest appear when my latest book came out, and the book was a bit delayed which my hosts all patiently waited for it to come out so they could post a link to the book. Consequently, all the interviews rolled out with one week. Lol, I was dizzy keeping up with comments and reblogging them all on my page. Feel free to visit. 🙂

    • WOW! I’m glad you survived the interview schedule and I look forward to listening or reading them. I did make time to listen to Annette’s radio show. That was enjoyable and it was good to actually match your voice to your name/blog. I have your book and will read/review it soon. Take care and keep on communicating. We need your voice.

  2. Don really came up with great questions and cannot wait to read more of the interview, Ann. 🙂 Starting at middle school age, is similar to how I started writing in a journal and adding illustrations at around age 12.

    • I never cultivated my drawing skills. I am still hanging with the stick figures. But I admire those who can do more. You’re obviously talented on the photography end as well. I enjoy the photos and content on your site. Keep it up!
