Don't worry, I left high school behind a long, long time ago, but being the shy introverted type that I am (like most writers) it's hard not to compare. Just look at the names on the side bar. SERIOUSLY, I am a blog contributor with Vickie McDonough and Laurie Kingery!!! YES, little 'ol me. I have their books on my keeper shelves. They are auto buys.
And then there are, like twenty-seven other accomplished authors right along with them. Can you tell I'm a little star struck? So, what am I doing here? Well, I love history. I'm one of those people who doesn't know a lot about one thing, but knows a little about a lot of things. I'm also one who thoroughly enjoys research. It's one of my favorite things about writing. I know, hubs thinks I'm weird too, especially when I get all googly-eyed over antique furniture that comes through our upholstery shop.
We've seen a lot of unique pieces come through. One had a falcon's head and lion's feet. We've seen pieces that were made by professionals, and pieces that were obviously handmade by a novice.
We even bid on one of the most unique pieces I've ever seen. It had partially naked ladies for the legs. I keep hoping this one will eventually come through. I just want to touch it and inspect the lines the carver chipped out of the wood.
Anyway, told you I was weird. And as you have probably guessed by now, I'm a tad ADD. I got so caught up in talking furniture that I forgot what I was doing here?
Oh, yeah, I love history. And I love to write. When you combine those two things together you an historical writer. Of course, I'm an historical romance writer. One who recently signed a contract with Love Inspired Historical for a Biblical romance. I'm super excited, as you can imagine. And as you can imagine, especially with the added excitement o being part of this blog, I'm kind of in la-la land.
I can't wait to share with you little tidbits I've discovered during my research for my Biblical, or tidbits on Kansas history, my other great historical love.
