Michigan Author

Usually, I feel like a poser. That is, I feel like a person who is pretending to be a writer. Yes, I have an office and a laptop. On my shelves is a copy of my novel and magazines that have printed my stories.

But, in my heart, I don't feel like a writer. Probably this is because there are so many things I don't have: an agent, a New York city publisher, a monthly royalty check that covers my bills.

Yet sometimes, I brush up against the feeling that, yes, I guess I am a writer. Today is one of those days. I'm now listed on the State of Michigan's official 'Authors and Illustrators' web page.

I may not have enormous royalty checks, but - by golly - I am government approved.

I know how you feel. I'm a self published author of over 14 novels (paperback and ebooks).

I desire those three things as well.

Prayers for more literary success to come in the future.
