A New Beginning

Oh lord, well, I’ve decided to try my hand at blogging and what the creative world has in store for me. My name is Desiree Scott and I live in Missouri, the beautiful part of the country known as “The Show-Me” state. I have just turned 30 years old and my beautiful daughter will be turning six on July 2nd. Where has the time gone?? It just seems like yesterday that I was pregnant and wondering, uncertain, about both of our futures. I was single and struggling, no place to raise a child. But Thank God, I figured it out pretty quickly. A word of warning: I love to talk and have been known as a chatterbox.

However, time seems to pass so quickly and I will try to keep up with this blog.

You see, I’m a writer. I do have an MBA in finance and currently enrolled in another degree program, English and Creative Writing. I know, weird combination, right? But I have been writing since I was sixteen and currently have an average of six novels started and multiple short stories completed.

By this time next year, I will have at least TWO novels finished and either self-published or by the route of tradition. I’m starting to lean towards self-publishing, NOT because I don’t think I’m good enough but because of the advantages that self-publishing will afford me, such as complete control, a BIG deal breaker there! I love control, professionally and personally but no, I’m not a whiner when things don’t go my way. I forge different paths and reality has a way of altering one’s intentions, you know?

Well, I think that’s enough about me for right now. I Wouldn’t want to bore you too soon, now would I? I will be posting excerpts of my stories and novels, as well as just chit chatting about everything and anything.

Everyone, enjoy your day and start a new day with a smile!!

I have been writing since I was sixteen years old and love to write both horror and romantic suspense. I think there have been many influences within my life that has set me on the path that I can not help but walk. A few of those names consist of Karen Rose, Lisa Gardener, Nora Roberts, Cynthia Eden, Catherine Anderson, Laura Griffin, Andrea Kane, and Lisa Jackson, just to name a few. This list by no means defines by own writing but they have indeed influenced my desire to live outside of my own world and to create the thrill of my dreams. I live on 40 + acres in the SHOW ME state with my two daughters, ten years and nine months. They are a handful! I also have three wonderful dogs. The weather is unpredictable, but the surrounding beauty of the country helps my creativity as I sit on my top deck with my laptop and coffee close by.
