This blog will be a mixed bag of things worth knowing. As a freelance court reporter of 21 years, I’ve learned something new practically every day about anything from heavy equipment, to types of grass, to biomechanics, to — well, you name it. If I don’t know it, I have to find out about it. Thousands upon thousands of words have come my way, and they all matter.
My early life in Mississippi, my adult years in Austin, Texas, and my court reporting experience all led me to this point. As I sit here in the dark (hey, as I was writing, it just happened) in Chattanooga, TN, I’m coming up on the final leg of my journey to publishing my first novel, Incredulity. Here’s the cover, created in Microsoft Word (another thing worth knowing), in about 20 minutes. YouTube is a wonderful thing!
Writing about a court reporter who falls in love with a cowboy seemed very natural to me, well, because I’m a court reporter…and who doesn’t love a cowboy? Although it’s mostly fiction, I’m throughout all of the pages, along with my dad. It’s been a very cathartic journey, one that will continue, because I can’t stop. I’m so excited about this process and everything I’ve learned! I just can’t imagine doing anything else from this point forward.
I can’t wait to share it with you! Stay tuned in the coming weeks for the launch details (and perhaps a few giveaways)!
Thanks again for stopping by…
