About Me

Welcome to Dropped Pebbles, my writing blog!

I’ve always loved writing but only decided to get serious about it about three years ago. With few connections and only some basic know-how, stepping out to achieve my goal of publishing a book led me down many interesting and wonderful roads. But I also learned a lot of tough lessons along the way.

My goal in creating this blog was two-fold: to create a place for readers to discover my writing (see Other Writing tab) and to follow my progress as I brought my books to print (see Books tab). It was also to serve as a writing resource for other writers. My articles are geared to inspire and encourage others from the lessons I learned, as well as to provide practical writing support and tips.

Networking and the promotion of other artists are also very strong features of this blog. In the hopes of helping others gain exposure, I’ve begun highlighting some fantastic and talented writers and bloggers. You can read about them in the Interviews section. Taking the desire to promote others one step further, I am proud to announce that starting in September, I’ll be featuring guest bloggers as well as up and coming artists of different disciplines. Very exciting!

But wait! Before you start clicking around the blog, how about you take a sec and get to know your host: me! 🙂

About Me

My love of writing began with an early interest in reading and of words in general. I was amazed at how linking words together in different ways had unexpected and pleasing results on others. They actually enjoyed what I created! This sparked a life-long desire to write all types of things, from short stories, novels, flash fiction, poetry…I enjoy delving into genres and forms of writing that are different from what I’m used to in order to stretch myself. Every story or book represents new challenges. I view writing as an amazing and intimate communication tool, meaning that it becomes a means through which I seek to connect with people on a level deeper than intellect.

Accomplishments? Chapter One of the WIP The Dragon’s Egg was published in The Woven Tale Press emagazine where, for a time, I functioned as an Assistant Editor. My Face, a flash fiction piece on mental illness, is featured on Kori Miller’s  writing blog, as is another flash fiction piece called A Gift for Mother. A collaborative work with photographer Fleur Alston called Easy Chair was published in the online publication, Stories with Pictures. A crowd favorite, Shadow in the Sun appears in a community newspaper. Frenzy appeared in the Canadian Author’s Association Anthology-Volume 6 (no ebook available but an older version is found here), and The Trouble with Rain appeared in From the Well House’s December 2014 issue. Nor’easter was short-listed for the Storgy writing contest and appears in their Storgy anthology.

Last but not least, Wolf’s Bane, book 2 of my fantasy trilogy, Rise of the Papilion, is now available in ebook. Book 1, The Purple Morrow, is available in paperback and e-book!
