Just in time for January

Now available to satisfy your
action-adventure reading needs!

DISPOSAL - Pop Travel #3
Cooper and Geri are finally in a good place, but their bliss is short-lived when Cooper's rebellious nephew Jimmy moves in with them for a summer internship. He hits the town hard and thinks he's found the girl of his dreams in an fiery, exotic beauty. Against all words of warning, he pursues her and ends up getting kidnapped by her powerful Drug Lord father. Geri tracks him down, but gets herself kidnapped as well.

Now it's up to Cooper to use all his resources to save them, including the hot homicide detective Geri secretly despises, and the latest sketchy gadgets his genius friend Hasan offers him to field-test. Sure, why not? Cooper will do anything to get his family back.

Got a stellar review HERE.
and here is the



DISPOSAL Release Party!

Kentucky Book Fair!

Met my fellow MG writer friend, Stephanie Faris!

Met CQ compatriot Darin Kennedy and
some other fun writer dudes with great advice!

So awesome to hang with my original writer Book Fair girls
at the West Virginia Book Fest!
The Fall is when I do my best Book Eventing! Great sales, great friends, great times! Looking forward to another year of greatness - planning it out, despite some questionable circumstances... Wish me luck!


Where I answer commonly asked questions and pass on writerly advice...

Q&A - How do you find time to write? I make time. I steal time. I find time. I designate time. If you want to do something, you coordinate your schedule to be able to do it. That's the truth of it. I write when I can, as often as I can.


January ~ February ~ March

January is new beginnings and good news!
I submitted WINDY HOLLOW! Beast World, book 3.
My short story RESET was also accepted into the Insecure Writers Group Tick Tock Time Anthology! So excited and honored!
And now, I'm working on my next, new story. It's uncharted, risky territory - Christian YA. I'm hoping I can yarn it mainstream enough for publication... also going to try to find an agent, again... blech.

February is brewing
Just keep writing... And putting out feelers for school events in the Spring. Should find out where we will land this month.

Looking forward to my first book event of the year and hoping for more during Spring Break in Atlanta!


What I'm Reading...
  • Waiting patiently for 2 of my friends to finish their books so I can sink my eyes into them!
  • I see a trip to the bookstore in my future as well...
What I'm Writing...
  • FARTHER ALONG - this is the Christian YA novel I've been wanting to write for several years. It's finally the MS du jour.
  • PRINCESS B - has risen in the writing ranks. I want to publish this beautiful baby - and now I need a cover artist, preferably one of color to do it justice. This 3rd Un-Princess story is about a young black girl with a dragon protector and instiller of confidence, shielding her from real monsters in a cruel world and teaching her to defend herself.
  • MAGIC STORM - this story has taken a back seat until I get the above more secure. I think I still need a few lessons in comic books, graphic novels, and series script-writing...
  • The 4th POP TRAVEL novel - CONDUCTION. Under construction as so many other projects distract me! Not to mention the new writing contests just released for 2018!

Where I'll be...
January & February
  • Snuggled on the couch or rooted at my desk! The weather is too frightful to venture out - which means I'll have more time to write, right?
  • March 12-16 - Spring Break in Atlanta. Hopeful to set up a signing!
  • March 30 - Conglomeration! A sci-fi con in Louisville. We shall go and we shall see. And hopefully we shall sell!

Curl up by the fire in a cozy, soft blanket with some cocoa
and a book! Aahhh.
