I need to just men­tion how much I love that “and” sym­bol in Here & Now. It is wicked cool.

Wel­come to my page, where I plunk down bits and pieces of what I’m work­ing on and think­ing about, with no reg­u­lar­ity what­so­ever.

This was a delight­ful sur­prise. My short story, He Had it Com­ing, was giv­en Hon­or­able Men­tion in the Writers of the Future con­test. He Had it Com­ing fea­tures a char­ac­ter named Evan, who will even­tu­ally get her own nov­el. The story takes place in the same world as the Gate­keep­er series, and also fea­tures a minor char­ac­ter who appears briefly in Chapter 6 of Gate­keep­er­’s Key.

I thought I was a Fantasy writer. Turns out I can now call myself a Romance writer, too.  So, that’s fun.
