The Latest News...
Hello from my writing room/ chicken farm! Yes, I am currently sharing my office with 7 lively little Ameraucana chicks. Don't worry, they're not staying. Once they grow feathers and the weather warms up, they'll be sent to the henhouse and instructed to lay lovely blue-green eggs.
In other exciting news (even more exciting than the chicken invasion), one of my short stories is
included in the June 2016 edition
of Deep Magic, a sci-fi and fantasy e-zine overseen by the talented Jeff Wheeler (author of the Muirwood series & the Kingfountain series). The issue includes writings from Brandon Sanderson, Charlie Holmberg, Cecilia Dart-Thornton, and Jeff Wheeler himself. Exalted company, indeed!
More about the e-zine can be found here:
Last bit of extra thrilling news: The Mermaid's Sister is a semi-finalist in the Realm Makers genre award contest! The winner will be announced at the end of July.
Finally, for those of you wondering about my next novel, I'm working hard to get my Leprechauns in order for you, and I'll let you know when they're ready to frolic throughout the land. The working title is "Once a Leprechaun," and it's another fantasy written for young adults (and everybody else who enjoys magical realism or fairy tale-like novels).
Happy reading to one and all!
