Hi there! Thanks for stopping by!
I’m Maya Langston and I’m a writer. I’m also the mom of three
terrible adorable children. And two ridiculously cute gerbils.
I decided to write my first novel in July 2014 after sprint reading the Outlander series. I was so inspired by the epic love story, with several key events of history serving as the backdrop, I knew I had to write my own book.
I’ve always loved writing. As a teenager, I wrote torrid anime fanfiction on Fanfiction.net, back when they allowed erotica on the site. No, my mother didn’t know about this. I wanted to write for a living, but being a full time fiction author didn’t sound like something a grown up would do. So I went college and got a degree in my second love–Journalism. I definitely wanted to become the next Christiane Amanpour and I dreamed of being mentored by Anderson Cooper.
But, alas, I fell in love and got married. Suddenly dodging bombs for a living didn’t seem very practical. So, I became a stay at home mom–and surprisingly, fell in love with it. I still think being a war correspondent would have been less stressful, though.
I started this blog to document my journey to becoming a published author from beginning to end. Partially for my benefit, so in the future I can look back and see how far I’ve come. But I wouldn’t mind of someone followed my journey and became inspired. Or learned what not to do.
So in between the diaper changes and settling sibling property disputes, I’m following my dream and writing my novel. I’m scared, but excited. Will you join me?
