I have my finished rough draft, now it's time for the next step: revision!
Last month I attended my first SCBWI conference in Springfield, MA. It was an amazing experience. I attended workshops facilitated by well-known writers, listened to inspiring keynote speakers, and also had a chance to meet with an agent to critique my query letter and an editor to critique my manuscript. I was most nervous about … Continue reading what I’ve been up to
I was so ambitious when I planned for the third Wolf Point prequel to be released May 1. Quite honestly, I don't know what I was thinking, because I had planned to write the rough draft during April's Camp Nanowrimo. Like when I wrote The Madman, the rough draft was not in fact completed by … Continue reading editing time!
Finally, it's done!

I had a whole 2 days to spare, and I decided to use them … Continue reading hi-ho it’s off to camp i go
Look, see, I'm editing Dreamwalkers! The TV is even off! (Made possible due to the completion of my "Parks & Rec" marathon). My goal is to complete editing by the end of this week. Only 13 chapters to go! And then another read-through! And probably another round of editing... Editing is a lot more work … Continue reading editing
I finally did it. I finally completed the first draft of Dreamwalkers!! It's a pretty big accomplishment for me. Not only is it the first novel I've completed outside of Nanowrimo since Hitchhikers (3 years ago!) but it is also the first sequel I've ever completed. You'll find the Dreamwalkers page now under Novels instead … Continue reading a big sigh of relief!
