I’ve always been a writer but have only recently gained success with it. I run a local writer’s group which I think has contributed significantly to this achievement.
As an aspiring writer I know what it’s like to bang your head against a brick wall and only get a headache! Believe me though if you stop head banging and start looking around, even if you can’t see a door, there’s always a window…my window was submitting to publishers overseas.
The UK’s appetite for horror is much smaller than the US, and after doing quite a bit of research, I started submitting work overseas and have (so far) gained quite some success with selling short stories to anthologies
I’m now thinking bigger and working on YA paranormal romance novellas and novels.
