Hi everyone! Thanks so much to Sandra for having me here. I love to connect with readers and talk about my passion, which is writing books. Sandra thought it would be a good idea to tell everyone a little about how I got started writing.
Like most writers, I’ve been enjoying books since I first learned how to read. I started writing my first book around middle school and even remember dedicating an entire summer to writing The Great American Novel. Well, um…I wrote about a half a page and then my typewriter burned out.
Regardless of my rocky start, my dream of becoming an author never changed. Even through college, marriage, and two kids I always had the desire to tell stories.
I started writing seriously a few years ago. I still remember putting down the eighty dollars for my RWA membership. There was major guilt over the fact that I was taking money away from my family and spending it on a pipe dream. But…I did it anyways. I think that’s a good lesson. I was nervous about writing, scared I would fail, unsure if I had any talent, and yet, I did it anyways.
There’s a quote in my office that I think is appropriate.
Look for the dream that keeps coming back. It is your destiny.
It’s true. If the dream of writing keeps coming back, then go for it, you have nothing to lose.
It’s also important to have a dedicated place to write. I’ll leave you with a picture of my office. Of course, this is in the middle of my house so noise canceling headphones are a must.
Thanks everyone for stopping by, and make sure to leave a comment and your email address for a chance to win an e-copy of my book, DARK FUTURE.

For a sneak-peek at KC's book, here is the blurb:
Awakened in the middle of the night by a future version of herself, Kris Davenport is given a mission: go forward in time to save the world—and His life. Of course, her future self doesn't tell her who he is, just sends her into an abyss and straight into an alien invasion.
He turns out to be ConRad Smith, the callous, untrusting Commander of Earth’s army and the world’s last defense. There’s only one way to know for sure if this strange woman is an alien spy—slice her throat. Except, he didn’t anticipate the heat he would feel as he interrogates the hot-tempered, warm-blooded woman. For a man whose sole focus has been survival, she's more temptation than he can handle. But a world on the brink of destruction leaves no room for love…and time is running out.
