Long-time struggling writer, first time novelist
Novice (?) level writer
I started Murder at the Mansfield eleven years ago. After trying for years, I finally gave up - shredded everything I had, deleted everything from the hard drive, it was g-g-g-gone.
I had a flash of inspiration for my old story and wrote the first draft in three weeks. The second draft took another three and here we are. Eleven years and six weeks later, I have a book (that needs serious editing, but for the most part, I have a book.)
Benji is my little man in the profile pic. He's a 12 year old, 8lb Yorkie who has his momma wrapped around his little paw.
