Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Cathryn Kusner-Thompson, wife, mother, and romance novelist. Wow… that takes some getting used to! Not the wife and mother part, but the novelist part. It was never part of my grand plan to become a writer, but now, after several drafts and countless edits I am pleased to call myself just that.
In late October of 2011, my husband told me that he planned to enter a contest for National Novel Writing Month and asked me if I wanted to do it too. After some thought, I decided I would try it. How hard could it be to write 50,000 words in 30 days? Now…. what to write about? Well, I’m a girl who loves live theater, New York, Ballroom Dance, and Soap Operas…. oh, and anyone with an accent. I rolled all of that up into a ball and came up with Once In Love With Lily.
The manuscript has now been sent to the editor. Work on the cover art is underway. With any luck I will be a published author before the kids go back to school!
