I'd like to welcome you to my new Author's Site. The last few months have been a bit of a rollercoaster ride, but things are now on a definite upswing. 2012 really started off with a bang and I have been making the most of it. I have attended publishing conferences beginning with the SF Writers Conference in February so that I could learn more about this industry that I have become a part of. I have met some AMAZING individuals who have truly inspired me to continue down this incredible road towards a life I am now convinced I was meant to live.
In the last six months I have published two books, It's Simply...Sausalito: An Inspirational Journey and It's Simply...GOLDEN: 75 Years of Inspiration. I just glanced at both sitting on my shelf and thought...WOW, I really did that! It's a pretty amazing feeling to see your name on the cover of a book, and it has just encouraged me to continue working on more book projects.
Currently I am working on my third and fourth books in this series. The third is titled It's Simply...SF: Our City By the Bay and contains my original photographs from the city of San Francisco and my inspirational phrases. The fourth book is titled It's Simply...SAILING: Oracle's Voyage to the 2013 America's Cup. I'm really excited about this book. I have been shooting the crew from Oracle Racing since February and have been able to capture some amazing shots. This book is a preview to the 2013 races and a behind the scenes look at Oracle's training.
Now that things are beginning to contain some ORDER again, I will finally have the time to begin seriously working on my Memoir. I have the outline and now looking forward to writing and writing some more. I feel very deeply about this book and sharing it with the world. Those closest to me know everything I have been through over the last couple of years and how through it all, I never gave up. I always had this unwavering faith that everything was happening just as it should, despite the painful times. I now know my purpose and feel part of that is sharing my story.
I thank you again for visiting my site and look forward to keeping you up to date on all of my writing projects. Special thanks to all those who have guided and supported me through this last year. You know who you are and you have truly been a blessing in my life.
Signing off to now,
