"What inspiration to have come so far and through so much. My inspiration to write has been my family, parenting and my work as a police officer. My three wishes would be:

"K, I am taking a stab at travel writing as we prepare to leave for our road trip to Colorado! Also I am writing about INspiration from OUTside! Yes, nature! Describe your backyard! http://themothercenturion.blogspot.com"
I co-founded the Writer's Club, The Promise of the Pen with my friend, Melissa and we meet regularly in Tempe, AZ at the wonderful, local bookstore, Changing Hands. We have 7 members of mixed genres and sexes and discuss our work regularly. It is very inspirational. I recently began my blog, The Mother Centurion just a few weeks ago and have enjoyed using the blog as my blank canvas for all things "writey".
I first began my interest in writing as a young girl when I wrote my first book, "Dino the Dinosaur".. He was a dinosaur in need of seeing a dentist.. I dont quite remember how that got started.. Now I am a cop in the big city of Phoenix and have been re-visiting my dream

Hi Adrian! I just saw your comment on my page, I'm sorry I missed it before! I am still finding my way around She Writes I suppose. I loved learning about your animals! I knew about Teeka but it's great to read about Gabby and Brutis as well. A house with a variety of animals is a great thing in my book. :)
Oh Adrian, the editing is always the hardest part... have been putting off for a few months now... hence why I write my little humor stories... but getting back at it... we can exchange anytime... it's tough because every time you go into a chapter, well, at least for me, I rewrite, change OY xx
Wrapping light and love around your short story. You go, girl! Still plodding through sending out the proposals and queries. Soooo time consuming! Would just love to hear one yes, so I could jump up and down, spin in circles, dance, cry happy tears, and fall to my knees in gratefulness, just for the day. Can't wait to get back to my book. I miss it. Yet I do believe that everything is in Divine Right Order, so I am right where I am supposed to be or I would be in another place. Celebrating the now, is my moto.
Andrian, glad to connect to a fellow author. Are you working on your first book or have you already been published? Would love to hear about your book and the steps you are taking to get it in the hands of agents.
