Pseudonym: Holly Fuhrmann.
I always knew I wanted to be a writer...
That's sounds like a good introduction, but since I didn't always know, I don't think it's overly accurate. Basically, I always knew I wanted to be a reader. Ah, that's much more accurate! I honest to pete can't remember a time I wasn't reading, that I wasn't carrying a book around with me just in case I had an extra free minute! I thought about becoming a teacher, but I had four kids which pretty much convinced me that, though I adore children, I really didn't want to deal with more than four on a daily basis. But with my youngest getting old enough for school looming on the horizon, I knew I was finally going to have to make a career choice. I knew teaching was out. And though I was pretty good at bandaging a cut, balancing a checkbook, and cleaning a house, I knew I didn't want to spend my days as a nurse, an accountant, or a maid. What did I like enough to want to do it full-time?
The answer was one of those little lightbulbs-over-your- head moments. Books. Ah, ha. Writing.
Now, my youngest was in diapers, and I knew I had a few years to at least give it a try. If it didn't work, well, I'd have to try something else. Luckily it did. I sold to Kensington's Precious Gems line, then to ImaJinn Books, and finally to Harlequin Duets, then right on that sale's heels, to Silhouette Romance. My youngest is finally in school all day, and I'm happy to report that I picked the absolute right profession for me! I love when they've all left. I come up to my office with a steaming cup of coffee, and sink into a world of my own making. Things always go just the way I want, and I always get my happily- ever-after! With four kids around, having someone actually do exactly what you tell them is quite the power-trip! LOL
Seriously, I love what I do. It's tough work, and there are days that I wonder if I should have gone with teaching, but when all the t's are crossed and all the i's are dotted, I know I made the right choice. Truth is, as much as I always loved, and always will love reading, I love writing even more. These days I still have four kids, one husband and a two hundred pound dog, and I'm writing as Holly Jacobs for both Harlequin Duets and Silhouette Romance, and as Holly Fuhrmann for ImaJinn Books.
