A Poet's Update: June 2007

I am currently working on my forth novel, "Heal Thyself," a fantasy described here.  "The House of Many Doors" is currently being read on a requested full by an agent.  I am continuing to edit "MindBlind."


You can often find me reading and critiquing poetry at Wild Poetry Forum where I am the head moderator, or learning with my novel critique group at Forward Motion for Writers.



A Poet's Update: February 2007

I have just completed my third novel, "The House of Many Doors," a young adult horror story.  

"MindBlind," a sci fi/medical thriller is in the final editing phase as I prepare queries.

"The Wings of Winter," an epic fantasy novel is on the back burner, awaiting reconfiguration into a young adult project.


A Poet's Update:July, 2006

I am 3/4 through my second novel, "MindBlind" and continuing to pursue agent representation for "The Wings of Winter."

Interested in writing poetry with children?  Take a look at "The Magic Box" project, with original poetry by a group of 4th graders (9 and 10 year olds) in our local elementary school.
