I’ve been in hiding for a while, haven’t I?  I last posted on this site over a year ago.  What have I been doing?  Well, I tell ya…

  • In the fall of 2013, I completed draft #1 of my first YA novel, tentatively titled Senior Experiment.
  • In November of 2013, I participated in NaNoWriMo and met the goal of over 50,000 words written for my second YA novel, tentatively titled Alone.
  • In January of 2014, I was lucky to have students in a local high school AP English class review Senior Experiment.  They had a lot of valuable comments.  I’m grateful for their input.
  • For the next few months in 2014, I re-wrote Senior Experiment, incorporating the suggestions from the students’ review.
  • I took a 6-month hiatus from writing until November of 2014 when I finished drafting Alone–adding 60,000+ words to the over 50,000 I wrote the previous year.
  • In December, I edited Senior Experiment and put it on the shelf.
  • Last month I revised Alone and set it aside for a month.
  • I’m now editing Alone, preparing for queries.

So now that you know what I’ve been doing for the past year or so, I’ll try not to hide any longer.  I plan on ramping up my posting activity.  Stay tuned!

And thanks for your support!
