What’s coming next?

Great news! I’m in the middle of edits for another novel. This book started out as a short story I wrote years ago for a Halloween themed writing competition. I was in the middle of writing the Rory’s Choice series, so I hadn’t planned on doing anything more with the short story.

By the time I finished the third book of Rory Choice, I still couldn’t get the idea I’d created in that short story out of my mind, though I was scared to attempt a full novel.

I didn’t have much confidence in my writing back then, and trying a completely different genera felt like more than my amateur abilities could do. Yet, chapter after chapter, the story took form, becoming something so thought-provoking I’m glad I didn’t give into my insecurities.
