Real Name:Lakisha Spletzer
Where to start? I suppose with the basics.
I’m a single parent of two highly creative children. I’ve been writing stories since the tender age of 8. It was always for school or my own amusement. Never for others. I’ve written fan fics (mostly during my high school years) and the stories tended to favor such shows as Star Trek, SeaQuest, and Highlander, just to name a few. I did a lot of poetry writing too during my high school years, mainly to release all my angst, woes and emotions that I buried deep inside.
After high school I went to college and got two degrees: an AAS from Mountain Empire Community College (Big Stone Gap, Virginia) and a BA in Communications from the University of Virginia-Wise. It wasn’t until after the birth of my first child that I considered writing a novel. Once I moved from Virginia to Florida in 2004, my goal solidified. I began work on a novel called “Moonbeams and Moonlight.”
I met a local writer’s workshop group at the public library and through their steady encouragement, along with my many friends (online and offline) I started taking baby steps toward fulfilling my goal of producing a novel.
I’ve had many road blocks and speed bumps over the last six years, but I’ve now achieved my goal and I plan on continuing to write. After all, my head is full of adventures and stories I want to share.
