I have written two books, one is published, A Distant Calling. It is about a young woman traveling in Ecuador, she is mistaken for someone else, is kidnapped for ransom and blah blah blah.....love and romance ensue - it is not sexually graphic so it is like a PG adventure romance. But it is self-published. I had one offer from a questionable place and turned it down - and never submitted it again. I really really hate rejection - so I self-published and it felt pretty darn good.
The second novel that I wrote strictly for my own amusement when I was fighting a depression, is called Riker's Folly and it is a Star Trek, TNG novel. I had so much fun writing it, it lifted me out of the depression - I started looking forward to writing every day to see what adventure I was going to have - and it worked.
