So, who is TJ Shortt?

Um… Hi!

So, who is TJ Shortt?

She’s a writer, a voracious reader, a wife, a family member, a friend, a pet-mom / animal lover, a spiritualist, a pescetarian (vegetarian who eats seafood), an ex-smoker, a college graduate and many, many other things. Most of all she’s just grateful to be here.
Where exactly is here?
Good question. Here would be at this incredible place in my life where after 10 years of taking writing seriously I’ve completed 8 novels, received hundreds of rejections from traditional publishers and decided it’s time to make my own path.
At the end of April I quit my full-time job. I worked as a truck dispatcher for 10 years. Not only was I good at it but, it paid fairly well and most days I didn’t mind it. However, I got to a point where I just couldn’t ignore that not-so-little voice inside screaming “No regrets!” and “Time for a leap of faith!”.
So, I jumped off the proverbial cliff. No income, minimal safety net (some savings and leaving my job on really good terms). Scary, huh? This girl has decided to do her best to leave fear behind.
Look out world ‘cause here WE come! The ‘WE’ being: my friends at Shiver Cove, all my amazing crazy-supportive people and of course me.

The outpouring of love and support has been almost overwhelming. Thanks to each and every one of you for being a part of this amazing journey.

With Love and Gratitude until next time,
TJ Shortt
