Works

You have the tools. Use them.
You have the tools. Use them.

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:

small Belinda cover Leigh

“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

tcb-cover-small

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.
