What drew you into writing that first manuscript?
For me, it was after I read, then reread MCKENZIE’S MOUNTAIN by Linda Howard. This dog-eared, broken spine, yellow paged book was given to me by a dear friend who thought I might like it. Like it? Loved it. The heroine was not classically beautiful, although thin. 😉 The hero, Native American, had lots of baggage.
I wanted to write my own HEA hoping if I could repair what was broken in my real life. I started writing on a legal pad–filled three of them before I got a computer and dot matrix printer. Doesn’t that age me! I was so proud of that first completed book. Sent it off to Harlequin. Got the rejection on my birthday! That first attempt sits in my credenza along the with 2nd book I wrote. But I was hooked. I needed to write the stories of my heart.
Please share what lured you into writing!
