The Reading Diva is in Living Roots!

Ten years ago, I started on my journey on becoming a newspaper reporter. With a brand new college degree in Print Journalism, I went out to work for a newspaper in Upstate South Carolina. If you know my full name, Google it and you may find a few of my articles still out there from that time.

Let's just say my career in newspapers lasted shorter than the time it took for me to get that degree.

It took me a long time to get the courage to write again. One of the reasons I started this blog was to get my writing mojo back.

So when a new magazine started in my area, I decided to take a chance and start writing for a publication again.

A year and some bumps in the road later, I finally got to see my byline in Living Roots Magazine yesterday!

In every issue, which is bimonthly, I will be writing about books (duh!). I will be writing about authors, book events in South Carolina (including an event I will be traveling to Spartanburg for next week) and book reviews.

My first story features Azuree Fulmore, an author based in the Charleston area. I met her though one of my friends and got a chance to talk to her about her two books, in which one of them will be released in the new year.

If you live in the Charleston area, you can get Living Roots for free at area Barnes and Noble and Piggly Wiggly stores. If you don't live in the area, you can check out their Website (and even get a subscription).

Thanks to the staff at Living Roots for giving me a chance!

ETA 11/30/11: If you want to read the magazine, here it is! My story is on pages 18 and 19.
