I’m the youngest out of 7 and a daughter of an immigrant. My dad’s family were very active in the live theatre for years with my grandmother being an actress who did costumes and sets while my grandfather was a playwright and director. They owned their own theatre in Prague, in what is now the Czech Republic before escaping. My grandfather published at least one book (in Czech) and when they followed my dad to the USA, they formed a touring troupe. My dad did many years of community theatre and wrote an online autobiography that I’m planning on editing and publishing as a book. My dad majored in English, his 5th language, when he came to the states. He became a teacher and principal for many years.
I learned how to read before starting school and excelled in it given my love of books. I’m still remembered as the girl in elementary school who sat writing during recess. Books, both writing and reading, are an escape as well as outlet for me. When we lost one of our sons in 2010 I began to write as if my own life depended on it. Beginning with my first NaNoWriMo challenge, I wrote the first draft of Tunuftol’s Fortress of Light in only 3 weeks. That was approximately 75K words.
After starting book 4 of the Tunuftol Series, I decided to go back and edit. Then other ideas flooded my mind. I couldn’t stop writing. By 12-12-12 I self-published Tunuftol’s Fortress of Light, my first book ever. And I didn’t stop there.
Unfortunately, in my excitement, I took on too many other projects and commitments and completely burned myself out. Exhausted and discouraged, my writer’s block lasted 2 years. Finally able to write again, I also felt the need to promote my existing works. I have 21 books I’ve published thus far.
Most recently I’ve reignited my love of art. I’d attended college many years ago with the intent on getting an art degree. While the college plans took a back seat, my love of creating never has. I’ve found a way to apply these two passions in the same line and focus… books. I create my own books and covers and offer my services to other writers and readers to enjoy.
This month I release the new covers for the Tunuftol series. I’m very proud of them and excited to see the reactions of readers.
