    I've been a writer since I was a little kid. Filling notebooks with hastily scrawled fantasy stories about dragons, elves and all that other fun stuff. As I grew up, my writing continued until here I am today.

    It's 2 AM and I just received an email accepting one of my short stories to be published in an Australian magazine called "This Mutant Life."

    Honestly, half of me is dying to just scream and dance like a madwoman, and the other half of me is too stunned to believe it. :D The magazine is set to come out in January, and I'm hoping and praying nothing changes before then!!!

    So I just had to share my good news. I can't explain how much this means to me!!!

    That is so exciting! I'm very happy for you.

    All I've ever had published were research papers. I really would like to be a "published author", also. That is a real accomplishment.

    Oh, go ahead and scream! Congratulations!

    I've had poems published, photos published, but that's all. Would love for more, but don't write much anymore.

    You go girl!

    Congratulations!!! A friend of mine just had her second book published. She writes young adult fantasy kindof. We used to refer to her a STBFA Stef, but now she is our PUBLISHED Author Stef. Her second book just came out about two weeks ago, and it is as good as her first, but I think better. I have bought copies and had her sign them for me and I have put them away for someday. Someday when I have a granddaughter she might enjoy them. And with her talent they may be really worth something years down the road.

    We were all laughing because of her covers. Both covers have young girls in their Renaissance underwear. But of course the people doing the photos, etc., don't know that. But Stef and her husband are really into the Ren Fairs. Se says that she can't sew - yeah right - but she makes all of their costumes without patterns. Including a corset with boning, lots of embellishments, leather work. I am just in awe of her skills - sewing and writing.
