Calling all writers: Let's connect

For twelve hours a day, five days a week, I am a driven entrepreneur, the president of an innovative technology company, Intent Solutions, of Atlanta, Georgia. In the early morning hours and late at night on weekends, however, I am a passionate author. I write fiction.

My first novel was published this week by Floricanto Press of Los Angeles. It took me years to get from inspiration to print. A companion book is in the final stage of editing and will be available later this summer. You can find my novel, The Spectacle of Let the Oliet and Obit, on Amazon.

I know I am not the only entrepreneur and businessperson who writes fiction. There must be hundreds, if not thousands of current and future authors lurking behind the slick logos and business imagery of LinkedIn. If you are one of those writers, I hope you agree that writing, whether it is fiction or non-fiction, is serious business. Like anything else we do professionally, it requires discipline, focus, and determination. More importantly it requires creativity and a drive to bring words to life---to communicate. In my view, it is the combination of these attributes that make writers very interesting professionals and stronger entrepreneurs.

I wanted to share this perspective with my LinkedIn universe to put my vocation and avocation together, for in reality, they are inseparable, and, most importantly, to nudge other writers to share their stories about their professional and creative lives. Let's connect!
