Just Do It! ~ by S. N. Bronstein

S.N. Bronstein

After serving for 34 years as an educator, crisis counselor, children
at risk investigator, and Regional Administrator, I retired from a large public school system.

I found my second career as a writer as I sensed a need to share ‘the book that was in me’. This led to ultimately writing The Fairlington Lavender Detective Series for adult readers. Soon after, I felt that middle grade students would love age appropriate books about detective work but with a twist. That twist turned out to be a series about two sister cats who became private detectives. These stories became the Private Eye Cats books.

My love for writing both adult and children’s books reinforced in my mind the belief that everyone has a story to tell. I constantly encourage people of all ages to just sit down and write. The rules are…there are no rules. Just tell your story. Don’t count pages, don’t count words, and don’t make a science out of an art.

Writing all genre of books do require proper grammatical formats and research to assure that the story is not only readable but also factual. Even fiction stories have to be credible or readers quickly lose interest in the author.

Writing is easy. Editing is a necessary but great challenge. Getting

published by a traditional house is a bigger challenge yet. Marketing and selling your work is the biggest frustration of all.

But never, never, never, give up. If there is ‘a book in you,’ go for it. Write, and the more you do, the better you will get. Few experiences are more rewarding than opening a package from a publisher and holding in your hands for the first time your book. Your creation. Your months or years of blood, sweat, and tears.

Do it!
