Krista Madden has kindly agreed to share her inspiration for becoming a writer in honor of her debut release, 3 Days.
I am just your not-so-ordinary mother, housewife, x-ray student, and candy addict. I live in the lovely state of Missouri where the rolling Ozark Hills are breathtaking, the weather can’t make up its mind, and the animals are bipolar. But, I can’t really complain too much because this cold-natured girl, after spending three years as a child in Alaska, secretly wishes for an opportunity to move to a colder climate. Crazy, right? Not entirely. I may be cold-natured, but I do love to coordinate outfits involving a warm sweater and a cute pair of boots!
I would have to say that I have always played with writing ever since childhood. My favorite thing in the world was when the teacher would say, “I want you to write anything you want to. The sky is the limit.” I actually had teachers that would say that and the only thing that bothered me was when there was a time limit. Now, as an adult, I find time limited to do anything, so I have to squeeze things in between the insanity that is life. One year, during x-ray school, I had been on Christmas break. After playing with the kids, cleaning the house, and we had all eaten, my husband was sitting on the floor watching television with the kiddos. I played around with the start of a story on my computer, as I generally do, and once I had gotten started something in me pushed to continue. Halfway through my story, I decided to send it to a friend’s daughter to get an idea of whether or not it was worth finishing. She begged for more, and I have been seriously writing ever since. It absolutely tickled me that I was able to take my hobby and entertain others with it. Now the ideas are coursing through me faster than my fingers can type. The excitement builds more and more every day. I could never get bored doing this, it’s too much fun!
