Hi, I’m Tricia. Thanks for visiting my website!
My 17-year-old son recently told me, “Mom, you write like you read–always working on several books at once!”
I get antsy when the stack of books on my nightstand dwindles and I compulsively keep a steady stream of books on hold at the library and queued up on my Audible & Amazon lists.
I likewise get uneasy if I lack blank pages in the notebooks I keep handy in my nightstand drawer and around the house. When my husband got me a new stack of blank notebooks for my birthday, I was beside myself with joy.
Over the past five years, I’ve written at least five novels and started a few more, all currently in various stages of development–from first drafts to umpteenth drafts. Family and friends keep asking me, “When can we read them?”
This website is part of my attempt–my resolution, no less–to focus my efforts and to share them with you.
In 2010, I wrote my first novel—loosely based on events from my childhood—while participating in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). Since that time, I’ve been hooked. What can I say? I’ve found I love the whole process–writing, editing, and learning about writing.
I can see that this can be a lifelong pursuit.
While I work toward publication, I will share my progress here, as well as my thoughts about what I’m reading, writing, and otherwise doing (AKA, life). I’d also love to hear your thoughts and to get your suggestions for what to include in these pages.
