I was one of those people that didn't view myself as good enough to call myself a writer. I was afraid if I told people I was a writer they would expect me to succeed and that terrified me.
What if I never finished my book? What if I couldn't get published? Then of all those people that I told would know, they would know I was a failure. I would always say I was just a housewife because I didn't want anyone to know in case I failed. Then something amazing happened. My husband starting telling people that I was a writer.

Time for another Top Ten Tuesday! It is a weekly book meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.
This weeks topic: Ten books that I want to read in a specific genre. I think I'll so with Young Adult just because there are so many books in that genre that I still want to read.
1. The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon. Continue Reading
From her office at a mental health institute outside what appears to be Miami, a troubled young woman counsels deeply disturbed clients while coping with her own heightening concerns. These include frightening consciousness lapses, violent memories of a high school sexual relationship, a menacing stalker, and an annoyingly arousing visitor who may or may not be insane. All this on a single stormy day at a time when a new mental health disorder has become epidemic and is threatening to distort memory and identity, unmooring the validity of reality itself.
A seductive and chilling novella, and a fascinating descent into the abyss beneath the lush surfaces of contemporary American paradise. Continue Reading
She is young and beautiful, and recently married to a very wealthy middle-aged man who considers her to be the ultimate woman for him and holds her out as a model for his beloved 10-year-old daughter. They travel to a mountain hideaway to celebrate their first year together as a family when things begin to unravel. Her husband goes missing after a treacherous car accident, and the wife and daughter seem trapped and isolated, and stalked from both inside and outside the cabin.
What ensues is the story of a woman driven by her soulless greed and self entitlement, and a man who is wronged and apparently out to get revenge. This deadly game of cat and mouse will keep you on the edge of your seat. The macabre scenes include deadly traps and medieval torture devices, hidden doors, secret rooms, and an underground labyrinth of torture chambers. Add in the legend of a hoard of pure gold bars, and it becomes clear that someone has a much bigger plan in mind and will let nothing get in their way. But who? This is the story of a plot so devious that it is set up to fool the State police investigation. But can it fool you? Keep guessing until the final scene as to what is really going on and let your intuition guide you.
Thank you so much for interviewing me. I never thought anyone would find me interesting enough to interview, I am a very dull person. If anyone wants to get into my head anymore than you do from this blog then check it out!

I had the pleasure of interviewing a favorite author of mine: Evan Ronan. He is the author of The Unearthed series, a series that I have thoroughly enjoyed. I'm waiting very impatiently for the next of that series to come out.
Why don't we start off by you telling us a little about yourself.
Evan: I've been writing seriously for almost ten years (yikes!). After years of hearing "No thanks" from agents and editors (or getting no response at all), I decided to give indie publishing a try and so far it's been such a rewarding experience. I've gotten a lot of positive feedback from happy readers, which is awesome, and am slowly building a readership. I hope some day I can write full-time for a living.
Career-wise, I've done many different things over the years which has provided me with a diversity of experience that informs my stories. I have a full-time job and fit in writing wherever I can, usually late at night, and I'm normally trying to juggle multiple stories at the same time, for better or worse.
I'm happily married to a wonderful woman that supports me in my dream of writing for a living and I'm father to a couple great kids. I'm a lucky man.
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish so everyone can create lists of their favorite books. I haven't done very many of these but I love making lists, so why not?
Topic of this week is:
1.The Whispers of the Fallen- Rebellion by J.D. Netto. The Whispers of the Fallen was a lot of fun to read so I can only imagine the sequel would be even more fun. I'm planning on reading it before the third book comes out.
