The Why Behind the Writing

As a student of history, I am constantly drawn to the past. But as a woman, the past has told me my story isn’t one worth telling.”

This quote is taken from the Note from the Author section in my debut novel, Crimson Time. Since it is the first line my audience reads before they jump into the story, I thought it would be a good place to start this blog. Rather than begin with a typical ‘get to know me’ or ‘meet the author’ post, which I will most likely do later on, I want to use this line to help introduce you to my ‘why’.

Why do I write? Why do I study history?

Like most things, the answer is simple. And complicated at the same time.
