I am guest blogging today on Robert Brewer’s blog My Name Is Not Bob and recounting some of my experiences of going from a well-compensated employee to the owner of my own on-line business–one that gives me the time and opportunity to work on my novels.

Robert is an editor with Writers Digest and his is one of my favorite blogs–always informative and witty.

Please check out Robert’s blog and read about my transition to a virtual world.

  1. I read your post on Bob’s blog and commented. Your story is one of freedom and perseverance, and indeed being “downsized” has turned into lemonade. Of course, you’re doing the squeezing and working hard, but making your own dreams come true. Proud of you.

  2. Sharon –

    I read Robert’s post today and was inspired to check out your site. So glad to see you taking control of your fate!

    Congrats on having the guts to do that!
