About Me

Page

Hello my Name is Nora and I am a writer. Not a wanna be or I’ll try to be, I AM.

My mother’s running joke in our family is that one of us should write a book about our family, but no one would ever believe it is a true story. Well Mom, I’ve done that and more.

I am open to suggestions and help revising anything I have written and will post some for you to read. While I do submit to Literary Agents and Publishers, I don’t like a standard Query letters, they feel fake to me. I prefer to use a personal approach in the form of a letter I would send to a friend.

I have been writing for about forty years, but never let anyone read anything. Now I know that does not a writer make. You must dedicate yourself to being a Writer and telling the world that is your profession not your hobby. So  as in any group setting let me introduce myself “Hello my Name is Nora and I am a writer.”.
