The Author in Me

I am embarking on a journey to fulfill one of my life long dreams and goals. I have a publishing deal to write a book and I am thrilled, nervous, excited, apprehensive, and in awe of the task at hand. It is often funny, when we are standing of the precipice between our past and our future, what a swirling confluence of conflicting emotions can rise to the surface of our being.

I have published small articles, poetry, prose, fiction and short compositions in the past…but this is a book. A book! I am writing about something I know well, but not well enough. My working title is, Denver Food, A Savory Journey. I am looking forward to the research, the contemplation, the interviews, and drafting a manuscript. I am not looking forward to edits, changes, different directions, and road blocks. I have no doubt that writing this book is going to teach me many things, least of all, about the culinary scene in Denver. This book is going to illuminate me: who I am and what I am made of. I can’t wait!
