06.03.2020 - The events around the nation have prompted a lot of thought on my part and a new blog post.
05.13.2020 - I feel like a total slacker because I haven't updated in a while and so much has happened! To begin: This month's Author Astronaut of the month features Kathleen Knowles. If you didn't see the newsletter, you can find the AAoM HERE.
The next big news is that I won the 2019 Lesfic Bard Award for best drama with my novel, Burn It Down.
And THEN, Burn It Down also became a Goldie finalist in the category of Romantic Blend. So keep an eye on the GCLS virtual conference this summer to see if it wins. I'm definitely not expecting a win this year, it's a pretty tough group that I'm up against. The very same reason why The Sovereign of Psiere didn't make finalist...did you see that list of Science Fiction/ Fantasy nominees? TALENT!
Either way, I'm still celebrating the fact that Burn It Down is both an award winner, AND an award finalist. I feel pretty good about that since it's only my 2nd year publishing.

Good news, I've finally started writing again after a months long dry spell. I've officially (for now) named my first Myth World novel, Elemental Attraction. Needs a lot of rework but I'm on my way.
Remember Me, Synthetica is at the printer and there is a link up on Amazon. I'm just finishing the eBook review then it will be available for pre-order. The release date for this novel is Wednesday, July 1st.
The Lost Temple of Psiere is with my editor now.
