As Women’s History Month is upon us I couldn’t help but think of all the women who’ve helped me through my writing career.
I’ll highlight some of them, but this by no means includes all of the powerful women that I’ve come across since I’ve joined the writing community. They know who they are, even if I do carelessly forget to mention them, they will forever be a part of my life, and I’ll forever be grateful for you.
I’ll begin with ‘the dream team’ as we often call ourselves which includes Andrea Barbosa, Chantell Renee, and myself. We’re all award winning authors, and have sometimes placed in the same contest thus giving us another opportunity to be together. Throughout the years we’ve worked on anthologies together including ‘Hair Raising Tales of Horror’ that Chantell and I published together.
Next of course would be Fern Brady who’s not only my publisher Inklings Publishing, sometime writing partner, but a dear friend. Without her my debut romantic thriller Blood On The Potomac wouldn’t exist. She helped shape me into the writer that has a fan page.
Next is the amazingly talented Patricia Flaherty Pagan who founded Spider Road Press which has published work from all the before mentioned authors. She’s a fantastic author in her own right, highly intelligent, and a highly dedicated mom. Patty is not just a strong female writer, she’s a life goal achiever.
Finally I’d like to highlight, Rebecca Nolan, an author I was a fan of before we worked together on my upcoming YA novel ‘Everything That Counts’. She’s been an amazing mentor to me and has given me the drive to work harder than I ever have before.
Thank you to all the female authors I know and love including Gay Yellen, Pamela Fagan Hutchins, Courtney Summers, and Taylor Stevens (only two of which I’ve had the pleasure of actually meeting.
Women everywhere need to stand together-that’s the only way we’ll make it in the end-if we support each other. Let’s work on making this world better for the women of the future.
