I'm excited to tell you that NIGHT SKYY is coming fall of 2019!

The book is finished and is out to my beta reading team, a group who will give invaluable feedback on what works, what doesn't, and how to improve the story before it goes to readers. I'm so thankful for th...

For the past couple of weeks, I've been designing a new website. My old site worked, but I was afraid to touch anything for fear of breaking it!
