I always loved reading, but I never aspired to be a writer. A composer, maybe, but not a writer. Then, somewhere in the midst of my dabbling in composing, I found myself plotting stories in my head. For years I did this, when I was driving, or couldn’t sleep, or was bored. Finally, one day I asked myself, “Why not? Why not try writing a book?” And I talked myself right into it.
Four months after I actually sat down and began writing, I had the first draft completed. But it was four years later, after a major re-write and editing, that I self-published “Heaven’s Mountain” on Amazon as a kindle book. Somewhere along the way, I realized I had to continue the Heaven’s Mountain story in a sequel or two. I had to tell the readers what happened to the other characters! So, I wrote those stories, too, with Mountain Girl published in 2012 and Mountain Song in 2015.
On another note: In 2014 I had the fantastic experience of recording a CD of some of my original songs. If you’re interested, search for Jacalyn Wilson on Amazon and you’ll find the album “Something Deep”, along with separate listings for each song. You can hear a short sample of each song, too!
So, what’s next, you ask? Hmm… I have a few ideas percolating in my head. You’ll just have to wait and see!
