Hello Everyone! I am your host Michelle Cornwell-Jordan and Jamie B Musings, co-host. Today we speak with Author Toni Rakestraw, she is one of the HerStory Anthology contributors which released March 08th, 2013. 

HerStory: Fiction Honoring Women’s History Month is a collection of flash fiction and short stories from today's top authors featuring female characters that exemplify strong strength of mind, body, and character. Some of these tales are based on real people while others are purely fictional. However, all are standing up for themselves and what they believe in.

From Toni Rakestraw

Wow… where to begin? I started writing stories in elementary school, mostly about horses. I also enjoyed writing poetry. Life got more complicated, and writing fell by the wayside. I did theatre, got married (hi honey!), and started having kids. Now that nature has slowed me down a bit, writing has found a place in my life again.

I spent three years ghostwriting web content articles; it taught me a lot, but I find fiction much more fun. After all, reading has always been a passion of mine, so why wouldn’t writing what I enjoyed reading be appealing?
