In the beginning……

In the beginning….. What a great way to begin a story; a tremendous story of healing, transformation and salvation. Every writer looks for the perfect opening to their story; a line that captures the hearts and imagination of their readers. One necessity many writers need is inspiration. The old saying “write what you know” is the best advice for new writers. Pulling from life experiences is the best way to start a writing career and that is what I have done.

When I began writing my soon-to-be released book, The Monster in the House, I drew inspiration from my son’s childhood. The story is a fictional depiction of his childhood with his biological mother, his time in foster care and his adoption into our family. The book is written for children between the ages of 8-12. Although, I think many parents will love it and many older children may be able to relate to it. Especially those who have been in foster care or have been adopted.

Each story has a beginning, just as each life has a beginning. Unfortunately, Nathan’s beginning was full of trauma and neglect. Most of which scarred him deeply. However, Nathan and I are hoping that the story of his beginning will be an inspiration to others that it is possible to find your ‘Happily Ever After’ and have the perfect ending to your life’s story.

The book will publish on November 1, 2012, and will be available on Amazon.com.

    • Thank you very much, Uncle Tim. I keep busy, but I love every minute of it. I’m excited and nervous about releasing the book. But, I feel pretty good about it too. It’s nerve wracking. It’s been my baby for so long. No one else has seen it yet (expect Chris). I’m nervous it won’t be well received. My next blog will probably be about that. LoL
