Hi! Welcome to Homeschool Authors. I thought that it was about time for me to introduce myself. My name is Sarah Holman, the girl behind the blog. I live deep in the heart of Texas with my amazing parents, five of my six awesome siblings, and a variable number of animals.
Writing is my passion in life. I spend, on average, between five and eight hours a day writing or editing blog posts, articles, and books. However, when I am not writing, I can often be found walking on our five beautiful acres of land, reading, hanging out with my siblings, or at my job at the Texas State Capitol.
Many people ask how I started writing. I remember the day perfectly. I had started Medieval kick. I was watching and reading everything I could about this fascinating time during history. After watching The Adventures of Robin Hood starring Errol Flynn, I was inspired to write my own tale of Robin Hood. My mother found out an encouraged me not to adapt someone else’s story but write my own.
So that is how it all started. For the next three years I wrote a story called Shieham. No, don’t be looking for it on my website. Although I loved writing that book, and the two others in the series, they are not good enough to show the world. However, writing those books taught more about writing a book then any book on writing ever has.
In 2007, I was inspired by a movie I saw to write a Sci-Fi book. The Destiny of One (which had a different title at the time) was the first book I started writing without really knowing where the story was going. As Maria’s story unfolded over three books I knew I finally had a story that was worth sharing with the world.
Last year, in May, I released my first and second book in The Destiny Trilogy. I have been so pleased with the response to my books! Although I know I still have a lot to learn as a writer, people seem to think I did pretty well with these books.
Later this month, I will be releasing the last book in the trilogy. I am excited and sad at the same time. I can’t wait to share the last part of the story with my readers, but I will miss my main character Maria a lot.
