To Write or Not To Write, yep, that’s a question.

Recently, I was asked why I write; specifically, why I wrote #WheelerNovel and #WheelerInDarkness.  At the time I was a bit flustered, as I was live on a podcast, but it got me thinking deep.

Why did I write a 450-page novel set in the exciting world of women’s professional cycling?

Why did I write a follow-up to the said novel?

Why am I currently writing the third in the series?


The truth is I didn’t write to become rich and famous. That’s not going to happen.

I wrote about a pro cyclist – a woman – to bring the sport that I’m passionate about to more people.

I wrote about Loren Mackenzie, gave her obstacles that many women (and men) within the sport and without, face in their lives – sexual harassment and assault, isolation, estrangement, abuse, rape, anxiety, depression.

The need to love and to be loved.

I wrote about her overcoming obstacles with grace and humility. I wrote to inspire other women that they too can overcome tragedy, they can move forward in their lives.

You can heal.

You Are The Storm.
