I went for years not finishing anything.
Because, of course, when you finish something you can be judged.
- Erica Jong
I can totally relate to Ms. Jong's words and I know I am not alone. Writing, in any form, requires a bit of bravery. And a thick skin. Ultimately, the work will be judged - by a peer, by a boss, by a client, by an editor, by the readers - even by the writer herself. And we writers are a critical bunch. But there comes a time when you need to let your words, your story, your voice stand on their own and be judged. Which is why this website now exists. A very kind editor has published one of the novels I actually did finish, Kissing Atticus Primble. And in order for it to be judged by as many people as possible I needed to spread the word. Hence, this website. Scary? Hell yeah! But it needed to be done. And though my little story didn't quite make it on to the New York Times Best Sellers list (or ANY best sellers list for that matter), this site has been a great way to share some of my other work for those of you who may be interested (well, you're here, aren't you?)
Until I can add "New York Times Best Selling Author" to my career repertoire, I spend my time writing for 6sqft (a cool blog about all things New York City) and The Danny Fund (along with other non-profit organizations), as well as helping small businesses with their marketing communications both on-and-offline.
