Introduction to 'A Tale of Three Writers Plus One' Blog
Hello everyone! Welcome to the first post for our blog group. The Three Writers are: Mia McKimmy, Debbie Herbert, and Sherrie Lea Morgan. Our Plus One is Sherrie’s lovely daughter, Heather Eustis-Fillion.
I wanted to introduce everyone and tell a little about what we write, and where we are in our journey to becoming … well, best-selling authors. Because let’s face it, to have that title attached to your name is every writer’s dream.
I’m Mia McKimmy, the web-host for our group. I write Paranormal Romance with SciFi elements and a twist of Fantasy thrown in for good measure. I love these genres and can’t really see myself writing anything else. But who knows how I’ll feel later down the road. My debut novel is ‘Sons of Sivadia.’ I am currently seeking publication for the first book in this series, while working on the second. My post will have information on Vampire Mythology, Norse Mythology, Egyptian Mythology, and Witches, all of which play an important role in the Sons of Sivadia series. I’ll also post resources that I’ve found helpful in the Craft of Writing, Publication, and Social Media, since these are an important part of a writer’s life. Occasionally, I'll post excerpts from my series as well. My wish is to give writers helpful insight into this career we’ve chosen, or that has chosen us.

‘Sons of Sivadia - When two souls become one, only love will prevail.’
Debbie Herbert is a talented writer who just received a two-book deal from Harlequin Romance for her ‘Dark Seas’ series. It’s a Paranormal Romance about a secret mermaid clan in an Alabama bayou. As one of her critique partners, I can’t say enough about her excellent descriptive and world building skills. She wraps you into the world of mer-people and makes you believe you actually live among them. It’s definitely a series that will leave you wanting more. She is a double Maggie Finalist in paranormal and young adult categories.
Debbie will bring us some interesting posts about Mermaid Mythology, crystals, and her path to publication. Be sure to stay tuned for the ‘Dark Seas’ release date. To learn more about Debbie, visit her website at: http://www.debbieherbert.com
‘Southern Romance – where love, like magic, cast its own spell of enchantment.’
Sherrie Lea Morgan is the other talented writer in our group. Her understanding of writing fiction never ceases to amaze me. Sherrie has written three Romantic Suspense novels and is currently working on a Historical Romance, for which she has an excellent voice. Sherrie’s work is an escape into romance and intrigue, no matter what genre she chooses to write. She’s a strong believer in writing what you know. Her first manuscript brings in her background in linguistics. She laughs when she tells people her son’s first bedtime story was Beowulf. Her post will include the ancient languages, herbalism, and from her latest novel, how everyday food can be deadly. She got this from her daughter, who happens to be a pastry chef. Another little known fact about Sherrie: she is a three time winner of NaNoWriMo, and a prolific writer. She is currently working on her author website and will be providing the link as soon as it’s up and running.
”Escape into Romance, one mystery at a time.”
Last but not least is our Plus One. Heather Eustis-Fillion is Sherrie’s daughter and will post about - the joys of living with a writer (yeah right!) Okay, I’ll wait until all you writers stop laughing to continue. As writers, we have varying degrees of guilt about our family and friends. Or more to the point, the lack of time we spend with them. When we are deep inside our characters and their world it’s hard to think about much else. And when exhaustion finally takes over, we pull ourselves from that place and realize we haven’t said more than a handful of words to those closest to us. That’s when the dreaded guilt sets in. But, we all know this. That’s why we believe Heather will bring insight into how our loved ones feel about this profession we’ve chosen. Because let’s face it, they are our biggest fans.
