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 .

Spring Holiday

Today and this weekend, The Rubies are renewing ourselves with our loved ones.  We’ll see you next week, but in the meantime check out the great blogs posted recently. Have a blessed Easter or Passover. 

Are Blogs History?

Recently, behind the red curtain, the question ‘if blogs are history’ came up and a great discussion followed.   It’s hard for us to know the correct answer, because our brick counter tells us we have between 650 – 1000 reads a day, which is pretty awesome. And some days, only sisters comment while on others the world speaks […]

What I Learned From Michael Hauge Part 2

Last week, I shared my notes on Michael’s opening comments and his insight into the Hero’s inner Journey during his Master Class. Today I’m sharing my notes on his six-stage Plot Structure and at which point the hero’s Transformation occurs.   If you’ve visit Mr. Hauge’s website, you can see his Six-Stage Plot Structure chart. […]

What I Learned From Michael Hauge – PART 1

If you’ve read my blog on February 27, you know I believe in a writer’s continued education. Last weekend, The Greater Lehigh Valley Writer’s Group of the ABE area in Pennsylvania hosted the renowned Michael Hauge. Mr. Hauge is known for his Story Mastery concept of screen-writing. Over the years, while attending RWA conferences, I tried to […]

Falling In Love With The Bad Boy, Is It Wrong?

Recently, in the Winter Writing Fest Chat-room while talking about how we get to know our characters and develop their arcs, I stated that my villain in HIS WITNESS TO EVIL actually came to my house. Some thought that statement was cool. Others raised their brows, with little icons of course. Well, I’m here to […]

Always

I’m a firm believer that you should never stop learning. On my last day walking this earth, I intend to learn something about this world, or the world I’m about to enter, or myself. I wince when I hear people say they don’t need to know this or that. Why won’t you want to know […]

Is Short The New Long?

Writing a great short story used to be the training ground for writers. Hemingway started his career by writing them, as did Stephen King, and many renown others. For many years, the appetite for short stories, nearly disappeared, cutting the number of magazines that included them substantially, and leaving only classic short stories on the […]

If The Gods Can Screw Up, Why Can’t I?

Each time it’s my turn to blog here at the Ruby Slippered Sisterhood, I get nervous.  Over the years, my Ruby sisters have taught me so much about the craft of writing, professionalism, and the handling of life’s ups and downs with grace. But what I’ve learned most from them is to be true to […]
