C. Gockel got her start writing fanfiction, and she is not ashamed! Much. She received emails, messages and reviews from her fans telling her she should 'do this professionally'. She didn't; because she is a coward and life as a digital designer, copywriter and coder is more dependable. But in the end, her husband's nagging wore her down: "You could be the next '50 Shades of Gray' and I could retire!" Unfortunately, the author isn't much for writing erotica. She is sad about this; she'd love for her husband to be able to retire and just work for her so she could nag him.
Gockel just recently finished her I Bring the Fire series and has now begun a space opera/love letter to the original Star Wars.
