Meet some of your fellow JuNo WriMos in our Featured Author series each Monday and Wednesday starting June 4. ~
My name is Don Beard, and I started writing in college. In fact, I finished my first short story then, a horror story set on my university’s campus. Anyway, once I graduated and had to really start working for a living, I put the pen and words away for awhile. Too long in fact, but that’s okay.
The book I plan on working on for JuNo is the fourth book in the series, and it’s called The Final Days of August MacLayne. It’s already started, and my plan is to finish it in June. Once that’s done, I can go back and pick up the third book in the series which is also underway. It’s called The Greatest Gift. I also have an idea and working titles for a young adult trilogy that springs from this series but that’s all they are at this point. They’re all Christian fiction, something I hold dear and have thoroughly enjoyed writing!
My twitter handle is @drb1227, and you can find me on facebook at www.facebook.com/don.beard1. I have a blog at blooger.com called The Freshening Breeze, but honestly, I haven’t been very good at keeping it updated. Between two jobs, raising my kids, and writing I run out of time.
