Back of the Book Blurb

Ok, I better come up with an original blogging idea here pretty soon! Today's Blog is again courtesy of Macy O'Neal, whose friend challenged her to write a "Back of the Book Blurb" for her writing career five years from now. Macy, in turn, challenged her readers to do the same thing.

So, short and sweet, here it is. Oh- BTW- I was not in the mood to brag about my romances, but was feeling much more YA today, so that is what I went with. I plan on using Ann Kimberly for another pen name for YA or Regency, so that is where that came from.

Three-time Newberry Award winning YA writer Ann Kimberly, who also writes Best-Selling Historical Romance as Jacqueline McDermott, has delighted us again with the first of her Middle School trilogy Gulf Breezes. The Times declared it “Funny and Agonizing, bringing us all back to that horrendous period of life, this time making us smile, remembering that it was not all bad”.

Although she used to profess to her Mother that she would: never marry, live alone in a cabin in the woods with a dog and write novels; she now makes her home in Colorado Springs with her husband of 20 years, two angsty teenage daughters, and two cats. Well, at least she is writing. You can read more about her and her books at (not really my website YET)

Happy Writing everyone....oh, still working on those 101 things to accomplish in 1001 days

I love it!!!! Now I'm wondering if I should have added YA to mine.
Deep breath. One thing (or a dozen) at a time.

Awesome! I did mine, too (talk about dreaming big, gulp) and posted it. I also did the writer quiz:) My blurb is under the quiz results at my blog.
