To paraphrase my editor, I have a knack for writing about the darker side of life. I write in a variety of genres, but my big project, my precious baby, is a middle-grade fantasy series. Other genres I’ve written include sci-fi, horror, lit fiction, and romance. See a list of collected works with brief descriptions below:

Works in Progress:
“Belinda Starr”, a middle-grade fantasy series. Book one: “Belinda Starr and the Metallic Enchantment”. I’ve been working on this piece for over two years. It’s my baby! Oh, but I do love this epic, beautiful story! Though I still have a few minor plot issues and character motivations to sort out, the 7th draft is almost complete …No, really, I promise! Agents, expect to hear from me SOON! 😀
“The Christmas Beagle” General Fiction
A heart-warming novella, following the lives of seven people and a wandering beagle. Coming November 25th, 2016!
“Tear in my Christmas Sweater” This is my first romance novel, though at its current length it constitutes as a novella. I’ve just finished the rough draft and will be handing it over to beta readers soon. It started out as a simple, sweet story about how life is full of both lemons and lemonade, but it turned into something much more deep and meaningful, which is just how I like my stories! This one stands apart from my other pieces, because it’s a story within a story, and there’s much more going on than seems at first, similar to the book “Gone Girl” by Gillian Flynn. UPDATE: This piece is on the back burner. My attention is devoted to “Belinda Starr” and on other shorter pieces.
