Thrilling Roads Not Taken

Once upon a time, there was a writer who had a wonderful agent. 

The agent got this great idea for a thriller--a "whodunit" kind of book with twists and turns and edge-of-your-seat action. 

The agent offered the idea to the writer, who agreed to give it a try.

Weeks went by. Then months. Finally, the writer had finished. She had written a thriller.

Only the thriller wasn't really all that...well, thrilling. Try as she might, the writer just wasn't cut out for that kind of writing.

The writer tucked the unthrilling thriller away and went back to writing things that were funny.

The End.

 The moral of this story? Some roads shouldn't be taken, because they're not your road. And that's OK.  

Ginger Rue's current book, Wonder Women of Science, is co-authored with rocket scientist Tiera Fletcher, who is currently working with NASA on the Mars mission. The book profiles a dozen amazing women (besides Tiera!) who are blazing new trails in their respective STEM fields. (Ironically, it's pretty thrilling!)
