IMG_3737R.Q. Woodward is a writer. She has written full length manuscripts, short stories, poems, and lyrics. Her eventual aim is to get her words published, if she can stop working on her new ideas long enough to edit and find an agent!

She studied religion, French, and business in college before earning degrees in Sign Language Interpreting and History. She has always had a passion for reading and creative outlets in general, such as painting, sewing, and baking. She is not ashamed to admit that baking and decorating gorgeous specialty cupcakes is one of her all time favorite hobbies.

In college, R.Q. got more serious about writing. The more she wrote, the more she shared her words. She printed short stories for her friends and shared her lyrics with musicians who turned them into songs.

When she sat down to write her first full-length novel, she knew right away she would have to publish it. She was hooked from the start. More novels and more ideas were quick to follow, and unlike the cupcakes that she bakes, R.Q. wants to share them.

She has drafted more than nine full-length manuscripts, some that were simply ‘practice,’ others that she hopes to publish. She is an avid reader and founding member and moderator of Writerly Book Club, which reads fiction and writing-advice non-fiction monthly so that writers can read and discuss books as a community. She is also a member of the judging panel for The Blank Page Challenge.
