Louise Herring-Jones now writes mainstream, historical, and speculative fiction as well as non-fiction. Once upon a time, when she was not much more than a child, she set aside her dreams of authorship to gather life experience first. To the extent that she now writes a great deal about aliens, spaceships, mummies, zombies, and other creatures, things, and places that may only exist in her imagination, or perhaps only existed long ago or may exist at some far distant time in the future, she made a huge mistake by setting her dream aside. On the other hand, now that she knows quite a bit more about human nature, foibles, and triumphs, she has a lot more to write about, yes, a lot more. Better late than never.
