- I have three books (soon to be four) published with one of the biggest publishers in the world.
- I’m on my second contract with said publisher.
- I’ve been invited to conventions as a professional.
- I’m a member of the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America, which requires certain qualifications.
I’m also have a group of fellow authors that I can talk with. We all keep each other sane (or less insane). But I’m also lucky in that I have a group of very good of friends (a whole family of them in fact) that couldn’t me more supportive. They’re always there to celebrate every success and regularly remind me how proud they are of me, and to be proud myself of what I’ve accomplished.
