Welcome to our blog! As avid writers who WILL one day be published, we are excited to begin this new and (frankly) terrifying adventure of blogging.
We each write for children and teens, with works ranging from picture books to middle grade and young adult stories. Our writing wanders across many genres, from fantasy to historical fiction to contemporary and non-fiction.
Our journey together began about 4 years ago at the Critique Circle website--if you haven't checked it out, head on over (the link is on the left). Despite living thousands of miles apart, we discovered that we share a lot of the same theories and philosophies about writing, enjoy many of the same authors, and we're both a little goofy. As a result, we've chosen to walk the bulk of our writing path together.
However, that's not to say that we're exactly alike. Angela, for instance, has an affinity for weird-flavored chips (pickle, for one, and the ever-disgusting ketchup chip) while Becca sticks to the non-revolting kind. Becca, though living most of her life in Florida, is white enough to reflect the sun while Angela, who lives in the tundra for half of every year, actually has a better tan. Becca thinks Josh Holloway is quite yummy while Angela--no, wait. We actually agree on that.
Anyway, if you hang around here long enough, you'll see that we share a lot of opinions about writing, but we're definitely two separate entities. The borg is not alive and well here, people; if that's what you're after, you've got the wrong blog. So pull up a chair, see what we have to say about the writing world--specifically writing for children--and please, tell us what you think.
