Author Fridays Presents...Tasha Wright!

Welcome to another edition of Author Fridays!  Sit back, get comfortable and read about this week's featured author, Tasha Wright!


Tasha Wright, a first-time author, has written a book that she feels everyone can relate to.  "It shows people that true love is something that can withstand all obstacles and time is not a factor," she said, when asked what makes her book so special.  The book is entitled, "Carelessness of the heart", and it is published by Publish America.


"I am a twenty-nine-year-old Texas native," Wright says.  "I know since I am publishing it may seem a little cliché but I do love to write.  This is my first book published but I do have many, many other books that I am working on and my second book is complete and the copyright is underway.  I love to read, and I have a bookcase filled with many genres.  The author who inspired and unleashed my passion for reading was actually Steven King.  Although, I do not write horror, his books were the first that I read that started that spark in me.  My favorite author would be Michael Baisden."


Wright never really fantasized about becoming an author. Writing started as a hobby, and she would let her sister-in-law, LaTamangela Wright read what she wrote.  Tasha wrote a short story, but her sister-in-law kept giving it back, saying, "you have to keep going.  I have to know what happens."  Before she knew it, Wright had just about written a book.  After completing the manuscript, she found writing was something she loved to do, and she hasn't stopped.


"When I write," Tasha says, "I have found if I can just write the first sentence my work evolves, and it pretty much creates itself. After I get the first two chapters down I pretty much know which way I would like to go with the story. I never use anything from my life experiences or others."


As for advice to someone wishing to become published, Wright says, "Practice patience and never get bummed out when you hear the word "NO". You will become all too familiar with the word no, because your work isn't going to be something that everyone specializes in. Stay persistent and believe in your craft."


Anything else that you would like to share with us?


"I would just like to say to anyone who purchases my book, I truly thank you, and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. I wish everyone the best of luck who are also on this journey of publishing and inspiring to become published as well."
