What story I’m currently working on:

So, my pace finally slowed, but that’s because I had an event from Friday to Sunday and couldn’t write for 3 days. I hit 44k with the Wanderers story, and I’m hoping to cram in some more today through Sunday to get to 50k by Monday. I’ll be back to chugging away at a faster than average pace, because this story is still flowing out of me just as strong. These characters just CLICK in a perfect way. However, I also finished the Take to the Skies short this week, rounding out at 7k, so, yay! Winning!


What I’m editing/marketing:I got my first edits for Of Tinkers and Technomancers in! I am so excited! Soon, we’ll be entering into line edits on both A Reflection of Ice and Of Tinkers and Technomancers, which is all sorts of yay. Still living the waiting life on all of my submissions, and I’ve been refreshing my email like a beast. My one beta finished reading and critiquing The Airship Also Rises, and the other is almost done, so I’ll be editing that soon, and I’ve also got to dive into edits for the Take to the Skies short so I can get it to my editor ASAP.

Teaser of the week:

Wistful notes spoke of loneliness, as solitary as the final birdsong of autumn or the trill of summer_s last cicada before the wintry freeze.

Line of the week:

Cole buzzed with adrenaline, stuck at the top of the coaster and waiting for the descent. Riley’s familiar scent, that dark amber of his aftershave, made his chest ache so hard he could barely breathe.


I split my time writing and working my day job as a massage therapist. If it’s a creative pursuit though, chances are I’ve dabbled in it. Hell, I’ve played around with soapmaking, beer brewing, cupcake baking, tea blending and everything else under the midday sun. At the end of the day, my constant is always reading, writing and editing. I’m an Aries-Taurus cusp–which to any astrology buffs should tell you plenty. I hit the East Coast convention circuit pretty hard and chances are, you can find me vending for Solstice Brews while simultaneously promoting my books.
