Welcome writers!

Yo ho, yo ho, a writer’s life for me. 

One of the greatest lessons I learned in the writing industry is that the rules are more like guidelines, which birthed my short-lived Yo Ho group, based on a line from one of my favorite movies. Perhaps one day I will resurrect that group. But today is not that day. Ha!

When I started writing my fantasy novel I had no clue about writing and the publishing industry. I have learned so many things the hard way that I want to be able to help other writers avoid the same mistakes I made. And because you have to learn the rules before you can break them. 

Here you will find a list of blogs, books, websites, etc that I have found helpful in my writer’s journey.

Check back often as I will keep adding to the list.
