Happy Friday!

Hello and Happy Friday!! I will be your Friday poster. My name is Colleen and I live in the Seattle, Washington area. I spent 26 years living in the Twin Cities of Minnesota (specifically, White Bear Lake and if you comment and tell me what movie featured a prominent line with my high school’s name (White Bear Lake High School) I’ll send you a $10 Borders gift card!)

Anyway – I am an active member of the Romance Writers of America and the Greater Seattle chapter as well as the Hearts Through History online chapter. I write contemporary romantic suspense and historical western romance. I just finished my first novel which I plan on pitching at the Emerald City Writer’s conference in a few weeks!!

I met Samantha about 10 years ago online (we were both part of an on-line writing RPG) and came to know Andrea through her. Samantha talked me into moving to Seattle in 2003 and we were roomies until last year when she married her hubby. Shelia (who you’ve already met) and Katie (who will blog tomorrow) are both fellow fans of the TV show Supernatural and we came to know each other and our love of writing from that.

I love reading romances – I’d love to give you author names but I’m at work and can’t really think of any!!

I’m also starting a new blog of my own called “The To Be Read Pile Project” which will feature books I have on my to be read shelf (it’s actually shelves at the moment) – when I get that up and going I’ll share –

I’m really looking forward to sharing my journey to being published with all of you and with my four wonderful friends!

I suppose I'm not eligible for the gift card since I already knew the answer ;)
