Jessica Patch, Jennifer Slattery, April Gardner, Elaine Cooper, Elizabeth Veldoom, Becki Reiser, and Donna Pyle. Today I'd like to shine a spotlight on a few more wonderful writers I've been getting to know online recently.
Ane Mulligan- Ane writes "southern-fried fiction". Isn't that a great tagline? Ane is an editor with Novel Journey and a humor columnist for Afictionado. She also serves on the ACFW Operating Board. If you are a member of ACFW, you will recognize Ane's name from the email loop. She is always quick to answer a question and help out a fellow writer. Something else cool about Ane? Not only does she write, she's also a theater buff! Ane, we gotta go see a play one day. There's a great little dinner theater not too far from me. I'd love to take you. Ring me up next time you're in So Cal. =)
Katie Ganshert- Katie is a work-at-home mamma who has a knack for bringing out the writing bug in her young students. She's got a great blog with plenty of advice for up and coming authors like me, and she's got such a friendly countenance . Katie is just on the other side of the second hill in the climb to publication, having found representation by Rachelle Gardner and landed a book deal! Woot! Her debut novel will be released next May through Waterbrook Multnomah.
Carol Moncado- Carol is a great messenger buddy who is always there to be a sounding board when you need one. She's also editor in chief at Pentalk Community Blog, and we've joked now about how formal we both were when we first "met" online because of that title. Carol is a very approachable, down to earth kind of gal that puts you right at ease. Her favorite place to write? Panera! I love that. If you're ever up late at night thinking nobody is around to answer a question on the loop or bounce an idea off of, chances are high that Carol is up working on critting your WIP while she waits for her 3 yo to stop wandering out of his bedroom and finally go to sleep... for reals! =)
