...On being an author...

It's strange...being an author, I mean. You can scribble something on a piece of scratch paper, write notes on a napkin, and jot down your dreams and ideas in the middle of the night all throughout your life, but it isn't until you publish something--that you put your blood, sweat, and tears into something--that it really feels... well, real.

When you have to activate an author profile and update your blogs and Facebook pages on a regular basis, you know things are changing. When you have to work on websites and write an author bio or have an author picture taken, it's a reality check that things are happening-that you're one step closer to achieving your dream, to meeting your goal.

After fifteen years of thinking and dreaming about authorship, the time has finally come. Thanks to my friend and writing partner, Lindsey Fairleigh, together we've made both of our dreams come true.

Here's my first, official author biography:

Lindsey Pogue has always been a little creative. As a child she established a bug hospital on her elementary school soccer field, compiled books of collages as a teenager, and as an adult, expresses herself through writing. Her novels are inspired by her observations of the world around her--whether she's traveling, people watching, or hiking. When not plotting her next story line or dreaming up new, brooding characters, Lindsey's wrapped in blankets watching her favorite action flicks or going on road trips with her own leading man.
