Michelle De La Garza writes under her own name as well as pseudonym April A. Luna. She is an American freelance writer and poet, who lives with her husband and children in Texas. She has an extensive background as an operational training specialist writing corporate curriculum and facilitating training sessions, which brings a realistic quality to the human emotions and personality characteristics in the fiction stories she breathes life into.
Give her a pen and paper, or laptop and she will weave a delectable web of romance, suspense, and intrigue that will keep a reader at the edge of his or her seat, turning the page, or scrolling to see what happens next. With her trusty writing companion, Fred Oak, her worn and weathered desk, she thinks of wondrous schemes that take flight to greater worlds afar.
Her loyal desk’s drawers secretly serve, every story, no matter how bizarre. She has a favorite of the three drawers. Not the first or second, but the last of the three. It is mysterious, leading to mystic doors twenty thousand leagues under the deep blue sea, but when she is done, she must close the drawer, so all of the lore does not spill onto the floor.
Michelle, it was so nice to meet you and your daughter yesterday at RWA Conference. Thank you for your insightful suggestions.
I hope you have been doing well. The conference provided a wonderful platform to meet other like-minded individuals, as well as learn more about the industry. How is the writing going? I have been working on several projects I seek to complete by the end of the year. 🙂
Michelle, it is very good to hear from you. I have spent most of the time on reading about writing and learning the software Scrivener. I have not made a lot of progress with my manuscript, but I have done some editing. That said, I have registered to participate in NaNoWriMo the first of November and have been jotting down notes all week. Writing 50,000 words in a month is enough motivation for me to get back on the writing wagon. So nice to hear from you. Say hello to your daughter for me.
