Our journey began long ago, with childhood dreams and ambitions of making writing a career one day. This blog is an expression of our feelings, adventures and lessons learned along the way.  All three of us are members of Thriller and YA writer Bonnie Hearn Hill's "Mondays," an advanced writers' workshop. We meet each week and critique each others work. This experience has been invaluable to us.

We will try to blog here on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, sometimes more, sometimes less. We hope you will enjoy taking this trip with us!

Stacy, Kara and Meredith

Stacy Lucas was born and raised in Fresno, California. She considers herself a lifelong writer and lover of books. After achieving degrees in English and History at the University of California, Santa Barbara, she moved to New Orleans, where she obtained her J.D. from Loyola University, School of Law. She also lived in a haunted house at the corner of Royal and Barracks in the French Quarter.

She eventually returned to California, where she is a practicing attorney. Stacy has been working with thriller writer Bonnie Hearn Hill for the last year in her advanced writers workshop. She feels lucky to share this journey with her Aunt Kara and her cousin, Meredith. She is currently working on the second book in her mystery series.

Kara Lucas lives Central California but dreams of living somewhere where it rains a whole bunch more. She is a social worker and works in adoptions and with at-risk youth. She is happily married with five children—yes, for reals, five—and so her house is always very very loud and full of missing socks.  She has a strange obsession with birds, show tunes, and the word magical. Oh, and Thai food. But I digress.

Kara writes issue-driven fiction about teens facing real problems and hopefully a little bit of kissing (cause kissing’s always nice.) She is represented by Gina Panetierri from Talcott Notch Literary Services. Her YA contemporary, FINDING PONY,  is about fifteen-year-old Jesse Sampson, on the run and trying to find his sister lost in foster care. She feels somewhat awkward speaking in the third person and so invites you to come stop by and say hello on her blog: or follow her on Twitter under karakristin. J

Meredith currently works as a locksmith by day, which inspires her when she retires to her Steampunk cave at night. In fact, the locksmithing tools she works with are ridiculously copper punk. She also has a Philosophy degree from C.S.U. Fresno.

Meredith is working on the first of a 3 book Steampunk series. She hopes to start querying her book in early fall. Watch out Steampunk world…she is coming to find you.
