My love for writing began with a love for reading. As a young girl our family moved a lot, so during the long
summers in a new town while waiting for school to start, books became my friends. Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden mysteries were favorites, and they almost had me convinced to become a detective or a spy when I grew up.
With time, this love for reading led to a variety of book genres and then to a love for writing. Next it was short stories, poetry classes, creative writing magazines, and summer writing camps. Then UCLA Film and Television School, film criticism, and for a decade, television journalism and news writing in Los Angeles. After that, personal essays, writers conferences, and contests until Fight Like a Girl…and Win, a non-fiction self-defense book for women published by St. Martin’s Press.
But my big dream was to write a novel someday.
So welcome to my big dream. And allow me to introduce Faith Countryman. I have a hunch she’s unlike anyone you’ve met lately…or perhaps ever…
