Hi, I'm Mindy Halleck, author of Return To Sender. My full blah-blah is below. I'd love to make connections in my attempt to sell my novel, and my upcoming novel to Hollywood. I know, High aspirations. Cheers, Mindy
Mindy Halleck is a Pacific Northwest author, blogger and instructor. Halleck’s short story, The Sound of Rain, which placed in the Writer’s Digest Literary contest blossomed into her novel Return to Sender, a featured debut novel in Kirkus Review Magazine, January 2015.
Halleck believes writing is a life-long apprenticeship, and as a cancer survivor who wrote her way through dis-ease, she believes writers can aid healing their mind, body and soul through writing. Not wanting to write about her cancer she turned to creative writing to explore her fear of death, loss and survival through her fictional characters.
“I took my cancer deep into my fiction writing, explored, healed and then left it there.”
As an inspirational instructor she emboldens writers to explore their deepest secrets, fears and loves, and then gets excited when a student’s light bulb flashes and they take rapid-fire notes.
Additionally, Halleck urges writers to embrace social media early in their professional endeavors, and skillfully shows them how to reach out and find an audience in the vast cyber-world, through blogging, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and other social media venues.
In her past career as Vice President in a Fortune 500 Company, a sales and marketing professional, and small business marketing trainer, Halleck brings those same tools to the writing world, saying,
“Being an author is a small business, and social media is a small business owner’s best friend.”
Halleck blogs about all things writerly at Literary Liaisons and is an active member of the Pacific Northwest writing community. A one-time romance columnist and travel writer, she is now a happily married, globe-trotter, gardener, and three-time cancer survivor. www.MindyHalleck.com Mindy’s AMAZON Page Facebook Twitter @Mindyhalleck LinkedIn Goodreads Blog www.MindyHalleck.com google+
