Alicia Kobishop, who was born, raised, and currently resides in the greater Milwaukee, WI area, is a happily married mother of 2 young children. Her formal employment history lies mostly in the area of administrative health care, and medical billing. She is the author of The Fine Line, a new adult contemporary romance.
That was the boring bio (although talking in the third person is kinda cool). Here’s the fun one:
As a child, my bookshelves were stocked full with the likes of Encyclopedia Jones, The Babysitters Club, Sweet Valley Twins/High, and everything V.C. Andrews. Anytime I had a free moment, my nose would be in a book. Then something happened. I became a teenager. A teenager who liked to take risks, and who loved to have fun. To put it mildly, books were no longer a priority.
After high school I entered the “real-world” immediately, finding full time work at a local hospital, and I’ve been in administrative healthcare ever since. Although I tried to pick up a book here and there, I always found it difficult to get pulled into the stories with my mind on all the daily things that needed to “get done.”
In early 2013, I finally put an end to my (never-ending) no-books-rut and began reading again. And when I say “reading,” I mean devouring. I started reading 3 books per week which is a lot for a person who hadn’t read a book in years. I reconnected with the young girl in me who spent so much time lost in a fantasy world. I’ve done some “soul-searching” in the last year and I’ve tried many new things including acting (click here for more info on that), and most importantly, writing.
I have found a passion for writing that I never knew I had until recently. I am so grateful for the people who nudged me to give it a try because when I write, I feel excited, enthusiastic, and driven (and borderline OCD…but I’m ok with that). Putting my daydreams, thoughts, and ideas onto paper is liberating.
