What am I writing now?
At the moment I’m working on a sequel to my YA fantasy novel, Dragon’s Truth. It’s kind of all consuming…I dream about my characters at night and think about them for most of the day. #writerproblems

I’ve also just completed a middle grade novel tentatively titled Liar’s Song. The main character is Dallie, an eleven-year-old girl who loves to sing and wants to be a singer/songwriter like her father. The story begins when Dallie and her little brother Bean are taken from home in the middle of the night by their mother. They are running away, but Dallie doesn’t know why. They begin life in a new town and must lie about who they are and where they are from. The story is funny and sad and filled with unique characters.
