Gerri, on Writing
“I find I’m much more interested in creating new stories instead of revisiting old ones. In writing these stories, I’m not really trying to them into a particular genre. I try to create real, interesting characters and put them in real, but interesting situations… I simply write the kinds of stories I enjoy reading.
There’s no greater feeling than seeing that first book in print, touching it, opening the cover and reading the words you’ve written, wondering if anyone out there will like what you’ve written! If you have a love of writing and your goal is to get published, my advice is simple. Don’t give up.”
