My Writing: 1995-2000

I began teaching in the 1994/95 school year.  Only those people who have been teachers know how much of your life can get swallowed up into your job, especially in the first few years.  I have heard teaching described as more of a lifestyle than a career and that is true.

During this time period, I really began to try and finish Princess of Amathar.  I worked in fits and starts, setting it aside for long periods of time, but at last I finished it.  With the help of several wonderful friends and colleagues, I revised it and polished it again and again.  Then I sent it out to publishers and agents.
