(I’m not going to lie. This is a copy-paste of my author’s bio from my books…)
Gretchen Hohmeyer was born in the Adirondacks of New York State. By the age of three, she had already taught herself to read by making her father read her the same books over and over. Though the earliest recorded bit of writing she has is from age nine, she’s pretty sure she was writing from the second she could hold a crayon. For kindergarten thru fourth grade Hohmeyer attended a Waldorf school to which she gives credit for teaching her how to wield her imagination. At the age of twelve, she began her first novel which she finished a year later. While she hopes that monstrosity will never see the light of day for quite some time, it spurred her own to write more novels and get them published. She began National Novel Writing Month in 2009, writing the first book in the Mind Evolution Chronicles in fourteen days, which she subsequently self-published. Since that simply wasn’t good enough, she fought to finish the sequel, Breaking Barriers – Xander’s Story, in eight days the following year. The third book in the series, Shadowed Thoughts, was finished the next year in a slightly longer timeframe.
When she isn’t writing, Hohmeyer can be found doing one (or several) of a million things at her family’s lodge and restaurant. Depending on the day, she might be doing everything from driving the John Deere tractor to waitressing in the dining room … or both. She graduated from Laurel Springs Academy for the Gifted and Talented in 2012. She will begin earning a degree in English Education in the fall of 2012, with a minor in Creative Writing, at Ithaca College.
Whatever happens, she’s sure it’s going to be a wild ride.
