Avid reader, aspiring writer, & experimenting artist

Post by CatholicCarry » 18 Oct 2018, 16:56

I am an avid reader--usually at least 200 pages a day. Right now I rotate between westerns/American historical fiction, equestrian novels, Catholic novels and non-fiction, and a smattering of thrillers/sci-fi. I'm in the early stages of trying to write a novel about a German family loosely based on my ancestors as well as some children's horse books and/or coloring books. I am experimenting artistically between painting & stylistic drawings on my iPad. Outside of these creative endeavors I homeschool my children, work with horses, and suffer mightily with chronic intractable migraines.

I was suggested this site as a way to earn money doing what I can do when in the grip of my incapacitating migraines--read & write reviews. So far I haven't found that aspect of this site, but it might be interesting to have a forum to discuss books and get free access to new books. So, anyway, "Hi!" :tiphat:
