Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers
Romance literature is my love - no pun intended. I've been an avid reader for as long as I can remember and have been writing for several years. As a secondary and collegiate English teacher, I appreciate almost any type of writing, but this genre is my favorite, and I'm honored to have the opportunity to contribute to it.
I have been an English teacher since 1995 and cannot imagine myself doing anything else -- unless, of course, it's writing novels all day.
I spent the first 33 years of my life in Arizona, but recently made a leap of faith as my husband, daughters, and I packed up everything and left our family and friends behind to move to northwestern Kentucky. We have certainly been blessed in that decision as we have found a new and loving community in which to raise our two beautiful girls.
Another leap of faith encouraged me to begin my own editing business www.editedwrite.com where I am able to put my years of proofreading and editing experience in the classroom into a new and profitable environment.
While teaching is my career, I certainly enjoy writing in every spare moment I can find. And I hope you enjoy reading what I have written. See my Blog: Cindy's Books or website http://cindytroy.com
Good luck with your new adventure, Cindy! I lived close to the Kentucky border in TN for many years. Couldn't have met a nicer bunch of folks there. Please do share your proofreading and editing expertise with our members. I know I would love to see something on common mistakes for example. We allow reasonable self-promotion on the understanding that members do help others here in our community. Hope the girls are settling in nicely too! Welcome aboard. :)
Kay, Thank you for the warm welcome. I'm excited to be a part of this forum and excited to be writing again. As an English teacher and business editor, some days I feel like all I do is proofread. I find myself automatically scanning everything I come across for errors. But I'm always glad to help anyone who needs a second eye to look something over. We've settled in wonderfully here. It is a beautiful and friendly part of the country. We wouldn't trade it for the world. Thank you again, and I'm looking forward to learning more from other writers.
