Maybe you've heard me mention the Fierce Five once or twice. If not, I know you will in the future. And here's where you get to know more about them! These ladies are my saving grace. When we're not writing or working at our "real jobs" we're chatting in our FB group chat. If one of us is MIA during the day easily at the end of the day said person will have 500+ missed messages to catch up on. If we didn't have lives outside of our group we probably would never stop talking.
I was a lone self-published author when these girls took me under their wing in June 2013. Now I wonder how I ever survived without them. I hardly remember now what life was like and I never want to go back. When I'm in a moment of self-doubt or weakness(they happen more often that you would think), ready to unpublish all my books and never write again, these are the woman who lift me up and keep me going. We don't always agree on everything. We definitely don't write the same things. But we have words. Words brought us together and words will keep us together.
How did the name Fierce Five come about? Honestly, I don't even remember anymore. I think Christy called us her Fierce Five in a Facebook post and it stuck. It's a lot easier than saying I was talking to Chele, Sarah, Starla and Christy. And it fits us. You'll definitely find plenty of spunk and snark and ferocity in our chats!
Oh, and did I mention we love The Avenger's? Hence, the awesome photo.
Sometimes family chooses you.
