I’m excited to announce that I finished the first draft of my memoir. I wanted professional feedback on the manuscript, so I entered the Short Fiction Break contest and adapted one of the chapters to fit the rules of the contest. Becoming a published author is a life long dream. I am committed to trying the traditional publishing route and am currently looking for an agent. So far this has been such a rewarding journey and writing gives me so much joy, despite the difficulty of the subject. My hope is that by being completely honest about my grief, I can help someone else who is going through a similar loss.
