I love to read. I have my favorite authors. According to this article, someday my favorite might be a whole bunch of people.
The article, talking about collaborative authors publishing under one ficticious name, says that folks shouldn't be surprised when the name on the book isn't the name of the author. Sorry, I pay for that name. It had better be the name of the author. If I wanted a ghost writer, I'd want to know their name.
I turned forty-one last August, and have never felt better about myself. Of course that doesn't erase the ten years where I was beaten down (verbally) by husband #2 and made to feel like I was no more important than a piece of the furniture. I've learned a lot from my life situations as I go along, even if they were bad ones. Belief in your own self is important, and never give up your dreams. Lucky for me, my current (and hopefully last) husband is one of the most loving and encouraging people I have ever met. Thanks to him I was able to rid myself of the self-loathing husband #2 instilled in me. Sometimes miracles do happen!
