When in the public school system, I wasn't much of a scholar, but I did like to learn. So after my mandatory sentence at Grand Forks Secondary School, I got a job and told myself that I'd never going to school again. Within five years, this non-scholar started night school.
Moving away from home when I was young, too young for some, let me do most of my growing up in the big city. Vancouver, BC. It had the jobs, the night life, and more life lessons than a late-teen ever wanted or needed to learn.
I don't like to admit writing stared in high school with poetry, then transformed into journalling throughout my twenties and later. What I would say, is all that writing didn't help me when I wanted to write fiction.
I gave herself a online handle of emaginette, dug into how-to writing manuals, blogged, joined writing groups to get this far and I suppose it will take me even longer still to grow into what some might call a bigger fish. And that's okay with me because...
There's always a bigger fish--Star Wars Phantom Menace
In fiction, I've had four short stories and, one novel published. All crossed genre with mystery.
