An Indie Author who works hard!

“If I had to say anything to new authors, it would be don’t give up. There is a network of amazing people who can help you with anything writing related, and there’s no timer on accomplishing any goal. Take it one word at a time until you reach “The End,” because that’s a feeling that is worth experiencing.”
