Why do I write?

This is a question I am asked a lot. For me, writing started as a child. I had the misfortune of witnessing some things that rocked my ten year old world. I really struggled with it, trying to make sense of why and how this happened. It haunted me, if you will. About six months later I was reading my favorites magazine…(Highlights  magazine for kids!!)... perusing and absorbing each and every last page…I mentioned it was my favorite magazine, right? ;} Anyway, while I was enjoying the poetry section, I decided to try and write one of my own.

I wrote a poem about what I had witnessed. It did not answer my questions as to why it happened, nor did it give me any other answers to my heartache, but it did ease my confusion and pain, exponentially. Why? I'm not sure, but I'm glad it did.

A love of poetry was born. I continued to write poems; fun, happy, sad, silly, it didn't matter. In seventh grade my English class required that we write a poem and submit it in a book along with a collection of published poems we liked. A classmate submitted one of mine. The teacher loved it! 

 Fast forward to college. While thumbing through a yearbook of one of my roommates, I came across a large photo of a boy. It was an In Memorial photo. When I asked my roommate what had happened to him, she told me he had killed himself. She went on to explain briefly what led up to the death, and how he had chosen to end his life.
As you can imagine, the story was very traumatic for me. The photo haunted my thoughts, and I reflected on it often. I worry for this poor boy, prayed for him, but found no relief for my sorrow.
A year later I took a writing course in college, and we had to write a story as one of the requirements. I chose to write about the boy. I built a story around what few details I knew and added what I didn't. My teacher loved the story and she encouraged me to publish it. 

I learned something about myself that year. Writing helps me to deal with the things I tend to internalize. I am a very private person, which I already knew, and because of this I seldom share my deep thoughts or feelings with others. Writing gives my heart and soul relief that most people get when they talk about what bothers them. I guess I really should keep a journal!

My novel, Unlovable, was also taken from my life. It is the story of a young girl trying to overcome a very difficult life. Maggie, the girl in the story is, again, based on two girls I knew growing up. When it was finished and published, I felt such a peace to have their story out there. It was a closure that I really needed.
This is why I write. For the peace. For my peace. For the joy. For my joy. I love writing.


Sherry has kindly offer ONE lucky reader an ebook copy of her book Unloveable. Here is a little about the book:

Port Fare, New York, has fallen into the clutches of true evil. The Dreser brothers have arrived with a scheme to increase drug sales in the area by whatever means possible. Seth Prescott is part of MET (Mobile Enforcement Teams) a branch of the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration). He's been assigned to work undercover at Port Fare High, and things aren't going very well, until senior Maggie Brown enters the equation. He's harbored a secret crush on her from day one, and now that she is in the center of the case, he's trying to stay clear and objective while walking the line between business and unrequited love.

Maggie is truly the poster child for Heroin Chic, complete with jutting bones and dark-ringed eyes, but is she an addict, or is there another reason for her appearance? She struggles with her feelings for Seth, fearing he is just another person who will eventually let her down, as everyone in her life has done thus far.
Maggie has spent her life caring for her alcoholic mother. A task that has left her heavily burdened and alone. Before long, her mother's health takes a turn for the worst, sending Maggie's life into a tale-spin.

While Seth works relentlessly to inject fear into the dealers and flush them out into the open, Maggie fights to stay alive as the hunt turns deadly.

Seth and Maggie's romantic journey is one of humor, heartbreak, and self-discovery.
