Books. Words. Stories.
For as long as I can remember, I have had a love affair with the written word. I recall when I was able to obtain my very own library card. If you have seen the movie, Matilda, you have a pretty good idea of me at a young age, minus the magical powers. I keep books in my car, suitcase and often read 3 at one time. Years ago, I decided to try my hand at writing. I joined a few writing forums and have been blessed to meet so many brilliant, talented, unique writers. Two of these writers are part of the WAMM home of which I am honored to be a part. We have watched the publishing industry do some mighty strange things in the past few years, making it impossible for some of the finest writers to break into the publishing world. It is a dream of the Three Musketeers of WAMM to give voice to many of these writers. One of the many things I am proud of is the fact that our editing staff goes to great lengths to assist the writers, beginning with the submissions. We do not offer standard rejections nor do we fall in love with each and every write. What we do is look at the story, get a feel for content and if we collectively feel it has merit, we then work very closely with the writer until it becomes the most strong, powerful, and cleanly-write piece it can be. I am truly honored to be surrounded by so much talent. My dream is for Writers Amuse Me to grow continually and become home to those with a story to tell.
