As a martial arts student, she became aware that the overarching principles of martial arts could (and should) be applied to everyday life. As she blogged about these things, her blog became a Dojo of sorts--a training room for other like-minded writers and readers who were looking for a way to bring balance into their lives.
Martial artists and writers are a lot alike. They both have to work hard, focus, and keep the end goal in site. They have to focus, train, develop a platform, have a lot of fun and never, ever give up.
If you're a writer and would like to kick it in the company of other dedicated and hard-working writers, this is the place for you.
Come train with us!
Every good ninja master knows your Dojo is only as good as those who lead it. Therefore, I'm proud and honored to announce the "promotion" of instructors Amy McBay and Katie Doyle. They are co-senseis with me--they are a tremendous asset to the Dojo and to me.
I’m a proud military wife, a devoted mother of a beautiful daughter and adorable son, pack Alpha to two loving dog companions, and servant to an amorous cat. I was raised in a creative family, and excelled in art and graphics until my High School Graduation. Afterwards, I joined the Air force and served for four years until getting out to better care for my children.
I have always been a vivid dreamer, and during the pregnancy of my son I started turning my dreams into a book. My world is full of werewolves, pixies, dragons, angels, demons, ghosts, and vampires. I’m a daydreamer, and a bit of a hermit, an artist, a bookworm, and a writer. I’m opinionated and honest. People have said I’m silly, odd, weird, a dork, a geek, and even a little crazy. They are right on all accounts. I am all of this and more.
Katie Doyle is an avid reader, writer of Young Adult fiction, a mom to two tornadoes that resemble a seven and four year old, a wife, and pet to a tuxedo cat named Oz. If she's not reading, writing, or getting Oz out of a tree, she's staring out the window daydreaming about anything and everything while doing dishes.
