This is me
Hi! I'm sonnie, the accidental author.
it all started when I started writing stories to go along with my friend josh's cartoon characters when we were in grade school.
fast forward to 2015 when I decided to take a short story I wrote for a class in college and turn it into a novel. it took 2 years (with no consistency) to write those 130,000 words. one night chatting with a friend over wine, my friend said, "you should publish this."
so I did. I threw her up on amazon.
I had no idea what I was doing or how this really happened. less than a year later I went to an author conference, met my writing soulmate and everything changed. I unpublished that first novel, got her cleaned up and the word count narrowed down with a new editor, wrapped her in a new cover with a new title and An Awesome pen name.
my official first book baby was born on October 19, 2017 (which also happens to be my mama's birthday).
Since then I have started a series and have another planned.
after taking a 2 year break from 2020 into 2022, I'm back to writing!
It's by accident that I became an author. it's through the love of words and books that I've started up again.
this accidental author can't wait to show you what she has in her brain.
(yep, you bet I just referred to myself in the third person - I'm that excited!)
