Heytherehey, I'm Celise!
When I was younger (elementary-school age), I suffered from a stuttering problem. Nothing too severe, but enough to where the library and I became besties. I buried myself in books.
And then journals, when I got older.
Which led to a love of writing fiction starting in the seventh grade.
But a funny thing happened during my freshman year in high school: I discovered adult romance books. Despite the fact that I was writing YA fiction, living vicariously through my friends, and then writing about it (Hee-hee. Oh yes, I was shneaky-shneaky like that), I didn’t like reading YA. Apparently, I thought they were boring as hell. Hah. Go figure.
I don’t remember the romance title that changed my life forever, but needless to say, I was hooked. For life. So, thank you, Unknown Romance Author. Yet with great reading power, comes great responsibilities:
Like spotting errors and correcting them.
Wanting to become Captain in the Grammar Police.
Finding out that I could get paid to read, so I could help others tell their story better.
So, I took my love of the written word and invested in proofreading training to better hone my Eye Spy skills. The fact that I can be a set of eyes for female entrepreneurs and authors makes me want to do the Snoopy Dance.
