Fiorella joined Romance Writers of America in January 2008, and that summer, she flew to San Francisco to attend her first national RWA conference. What she learned there was that successful romances writers come in all sizes, shapes, and ages, which meant she too could aspire. In 2010, with several contest firsts under her belt, Fio attended her second national conference, in Orlando, and came away with the realization that she not only had to be as good as other romance writers, but better, in order to get published. In 2011, she came away from the New York conference determined to get a good agent. Now, in 2013, she will attend the Atlanta conference, meet with her agent, the divine Liza, and discuss her career.
Before Fiorella joined RWA, she had been writing romances for twenty-five years and even aroused some editorial interest, but she didn't know how to follow up or respond appropriately. Now, in just five years, she's on the brink.
Wish her a good journey.
