A to Z meme. This week's letter is "A."
If they asked me what I had published, that would perhaps be easier - though not nearly as exciting as I would like. I've had hundreds of newspaper articles published (worked for a couple different papers over a few years), as well as some flash fiction (and flash nonfiction - if that's even a genre LOL) in a magazine or two, a few anthologies, and a Sunday School paper.
Another possible question that could be answered more easily is what have I written. Hundreds of blog posts. Some poetry. Flash fiction in just about every genre but horror and erotica. A nonfiction book. The start of a biblical fiction book. A couple picture books, and a devotional book geared toward tweens. And likely several other things I'm not remembering off the top of my head
But these answers aren't very helpful - especially if I'm trying to get someone to read (or publish) something I've penned (or keyboarded). So I think I have come up with a better way to search for my answer to this question.
Because I think that when someone asks me what I write, they really want to know what, once I become a published author, I wish to be known for. And even if I'm wrong, that's what I'm going with :)
So, as an author (I'm not terribly comfortable calling myself one since I kinda see authors as published in book-length form, and I'm not), Joanne Sher writes books for kids focused on biblical truths.

Guess I'd better practice that for the next time someone asks...
When someone asks what you do (or write), what is YOUR response? Do you need to rethink it?
