When I was fourteen, a friend of mine got to playing a little too rough at the bus stop one morning. The result? A shattered knee. Mine!
After undergoing surgery, I was laid up in bed for an entire year. The only things that I had to entertain myself with were books. In particular, Harlequin Romance. One day, my father stopped in and saw all of the romance books strewn across the bed and left, without a word. Within five minutes he was back. He tossed a book onto my lap and said, "You need to broaden your reading horizons." He placed a kiss on my forehead and left again.
I'd never heard of this author, nor was I familiar with his works, but my dad, an avid reader also, wouldn't hand me something not worth reading. I opened to the first page and was immediately engrossed in the story of intrigue. Dirk Pitt became my ideal hero.
That day, I fell in love with the written word.
When I began writing, I decided to take events from my life and transform them into elaborate stories. It was an exercise in catharticism. Later, my children and my husband offered an endless supply of ideas, both deliberate and inadvertent. Their input and support is why all of my books are dedicated to them, with much love.
Today, I own and operate a state-licensed daycare facility and write as often as time affords. To date, I have written 10 titles. Because I've self-published and have also had works picked up by a traditional publisher, I am what is now referred to as a "hybrid" author.
Additionally, I write using the names B. Woster and B.J. Woster, to distinguish between genres.
