Blog Hop: Writing to Read

book blogger hopThis week’s Book Blogger Hop question: Have you ever wanted to write a book? If so, what genre would you choose? And…have you been successful in writing a book?

Hopefully all regular readers know that my answer to this question is an emphatic YES. 🙂  I have written and published three novels, with my fourth to come out in October.  Check out my Novel News page for the details!

The three (soon to be four) novels I’ve published are all Young Adult Fantasy, inspired by fairy tales.  I’ve also written historical fiction and science fiction–both some old drafts that will probably never be published, and some recent writing that I hope to put out over the next few years.  As in my reading, I love visiting worlds unlike the one I live in.

Writing is more work than reading, but (when it’s going well) it’s more fun too.  I get to create the characters and stories I want to read about.  Characters I write live in my head in a way that even the best-drawn character I merely read about doesn’t.

I know at least a few of my readers are writers too…did reading draw you to writing?

    I’ve never had the desire to write a book but I admire those who do. It takes real talent and determination to see a project through to the end and tell a story for others to enjoy. Lots of people talk about wanting to write, but only a small percentage actually do it.
