I met Sci-Fi and Paranormal author David Hulegaard this year at PAX Prime and loved him instantly. He works on the community team at BioWare so he and my partner in crime Hilary Heskett Shapiro do a lot of business together.
Since the three of us are all working on novels, we got the crazy idea to form a writer's group, and it's been going along wonderfully so far.
My mom, author Judy Fitzwater, has been a big believer in writer's groups for a long time. The members of hers have seen a lot of success, and she even made a writer's group central to her Jennifer Marsh mystery series.
This is the first one I've been in, and while it's a lot of work to read and critique others, I've learned so much from Hilary and David.
I'm about halfway through my first novel, a supernatural werewolf romance, and it's already gotten so much stronger with their feedback.
I'm looking forward to seeing how all of our projects come out in the end.
Wish us luck!
