Why I write from Sheryl Brennan:

Have you ever stopped an activity you REALLY enjoyed doing, then picked it up again one day only to ask yourself, “Self, why in the world did we quit doing this?”

That’s exactly what happened to me in July of 2007.

I had just graduated from college with my degree in Business Management. It took me ten years to earn that degree. I should’ve been breathing a sigh of relief. Instead, I felt incomplete. Like a part of my life was still missing.

So, I did the only thing I could to compose my thoughts. I wrote. Over the course of days, my journal entries went from how I was feeling, to new characters that popped into my head and pleaded for me to tell their stories.

In six short weeks, I’d completed a Celtic historical romance manuscript and was working on the sequel. I wrote during my lunch hours, when I got home from work (in-between homework, dinner, etc.), and from the time the kids went to bed, until sometimes one and two in the morning! The next day, I’d get up and start all over again. On the weekends, I’d sneak in as much writing time as I possibly could. And you know what? I COULDN’T HAVE BEEN HAPPIER.

It had been nearly twenty years since I put on my writer’s hat, but in that short period, my world came into focus. Creating historical and paranormal romance fiction was what I’d been missing. So now, I’m making up for lost time. The ideas and characters just keep coming: from the American South, England, Ireland, Wales, and Italy. I’ll be writing a tale for each, and I’d love to share them with you.
