Hello there, reader friends!
How's your January been so far?
Last year was pretty rough for me. I'm hopeful that 2023 will be a better year, full of good surprises (because who needs any more of the bad ones?) This year, I want to:
- post all 39 episodes of The Gingerbread Queen on Kindle Vella by the end of February
- finish writing Trowbridge & Fye (the wrong number/bridge troll story)
- overhaul The Antler Girl novel
- finish editing a short story that's going to be included in an upcoming anthology
- have fun at a couple of writers' conferences and book festivals
What do you hope to do this year? Share in the comments if you like!

HANSEL & GRETEL'S TALE CONTINUES. Years after fleeing the witch's gingerbread cottage, Gretel returns to hide from townsfolk who accuse her of being the witch's successor. Handsome baker Lukas offers the only recipe to repair the crumbling cottage. Soon, Gretel's innate magic ignites, as does the spark between her and Lukas. Could it be her fate to become the next cruel witch to reign over the forest--and to lose any chance of a happily-ever-after with Lukas?
