It took me a long time to figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up. Dinosaur wrestler, duck fancier, child herder, and many more were considered. I worked in warehouses, retirement homes, and as a van driver (not all at the same time), before finding myself at college learning how and why cars do what they do. Fast forward, and I'm sat at a desk in the offices of a prestige British car manufacturer with grown up responsibilities. It's the best job I've ever had, and the envy of my friends, especially when I'm driving sporty saloons at high speed around the test track.

So, why am I here?

As much as I like my job, I found something that makes me unimaginatively happy and fulfilled. Writing. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside, in a way that fizzy pop alone cannot.

I love everything about it, even when I'm banging my head against the desk at 2am trying to make my author website do 1 stupid little thing, whilst rocking my 2 month old baby's rocker with my left foot. I love making spider diagrams of potential plot leads. I love shopping for book covers, and I love the whole editing process (even if I end up having to start again).

I have one book already out and available for purchase. It's had nothing but positive feedback (except for the cover I made for it, that was rubbish, I accept that now). I'm half way through the 2nd in the series, and almost finished on the 1st of another series. I have a novella in the pipeline too, and a couple more ideas that my Husband said I'm not allowed to even think about until the others are finished.

I need help though. My stories are enjoyed, even loved (or so my mom assures me), but I'm still way behind where I should be. I need support to get my cover artist paid, editors engaged, and marketing under way. I've put my money, my tears, my heart and my soul into every word of every story, but I can't do this alone.

So, what will I be when I grow up? I want to be a writer, for real! Can you help me?
