How On Earth Did I get Here?

Me? A Writer?

It’s December 2021, and I  have no idea where the year went. Six months ago I hadn’t even entertained the notion of writing a book of my own, and now I have plans to publish Mason and Jackson’s story in the spring.

So – how did I get here?

2020 and 2021 were weird years for  – well, everyone, I guess.  I’m no exception.  The Covid pandemic was a big part of it, but there was a perfect shitstorm of crap that went down in my family that year.  It all resulted in us picking up and moving away from a home and neighborhood that I loved, to a different country.  After a decade in the US, we moved back to Canada and settled in a small town. We have some family here, but we’ve not lived here before.

Picking up and moving to a place where you don’t have friends is hard at any time.  The pandemic made it harder to meet new people, so, to put it bluntly, I was (and often still am) lonely as fuck.

I’ve always been a reader, so I read like crazy.  I fell in love with MM romance, which was new to me.  I also discovered, and fell madly in love with, the online community of mm romance readers and writers. I got lucky enough to make a good friend who writes mm romance, and she inspired me.

I’ve still got a long way to go with Mason and Jackson’s story,  and I have no idea whether anyone will like it, or even read it, but I’m proud of myself for taking it on.  I’m still terrified of showing it to anyone.
