Linda Lattin’s Wheels of Mizfortunate

I was able to write my book with sheer determination, which is common for many writers. Success requires determination. I was in a serious car accident that left me critically injured and comatose for over four months. When I awoke I had NO memory of my life. I was dazed as anyone would be and my mind was blank.

Amanda Starling – Featured Author

I have always had an interest in creating characters, whether it is in creative writing or sitting in a café watching different people walking by, guessing their life story. I have tried to start writing a book several times in my adult lifetime, only to be discouraged by the enormity that it held. Questions would cloud my creativity, such as ‘Who would want to read what I write?’, ‘Which publisher will want to publish it?’, ‘How much is it going to cost me?’ It was last year that I decided, ‘This is it, I am going to write my story!’…
