All About AJ
I’m a quiet nut with the earned middle name of trouble. I've earned it. As a reporter for my high school paper, I wrote a few controversial articles concerning the teachers’ lounge, the cafeteria lunches and Mickey Mouse and thus spent a few hours speaking to the principal. Later became the editor of the paper and the story continued.
My parents wanted me to be a teacher. I didn’t. So life took me in a different direction and I put my writing to the side. One day, after twenty years of PTO and team mom duties under my belt, and with the empty nest symptom on my horizon I decided it was time to fulfill my dream. I found RWA, started typing, submitted, got rejected, cried, blew nose, learned some more and repeated the process more times than I care to admit. Then BINGO, I found judges and editors who loved my voice. Now I have four books published. My newest release is an romantic suspense titled SEIZED BY DARKNESS. I hope you'll check it out at www.autumnjordon.com.
I’m married to my hero who aspires me. I have five great kids and five adorable grandchildren with two more on the way.
With God’s blessing, I hope to have decades more with my DH by my side, a dozen more grandchildren so that I can spoil them, and a hundred published novels .

Next week, during the Ruby Winter Writing Fest, we begin the quest to bring our imaginary friends to life. Reading that line, I’ll bet some of you immediately had this mental picture of yourself sitting at your favorite work spot, downing carafes of coffee or tea (or in my case, Diet Coke) while drilling the key […]

What is the BIG hook? Simple. A title. Don’t believe me, read on. A few months ago, in a reader forum, I started a discussion, asking the question ‘what first grabs your attention when searching for a book in brick store?’ My thread stayed on top for weeks as readers offered their opinions. A great […]

Small Business: Writing Through The Holidays If you Google writing through the holidays, you’re going to find dozens of articles written on the subject, including a great one dated last December by our own Ruby Sister Addison Fox. Many authors offer the same advice, and I’m going to bring up the same points too later, […]
