Angie Marotte is an author who refuses to do this in the third person because the act of writing is intimate to me and, as a consequence, my writing itself is honest and personal. I write a lot about myself because it is how I understand my world and who I am. I write memoir in this blog and process the difficult job of being a caretaker and use my words to preserve and bring to my own attention all that I am thankful for. I am also a Horror writer with an almost finished draft of novel #1. It’s called Dissonance. There is even a growing pile of short stories, to my pleasant surprise. There are many more half formed characters and brewing ideas that sit up on shelves in my room or lurk in doorways, staring at me. Their eye brows are slightly raised and arms are crossed. They are impatient. They want me to create them, already!
Not that long ago, I quit my job as a teacher to write and care take full time. I am at the cusp of this new career as an author. Thank you for taking the journey with me.
