My Current Projects

Poetry Project for a Friend

New book set in Mexico

YA First Kiss Short Story

Paranormal Romance Short Story

Above are the current things rolling around in my brain, but most recently, I've completed my first newsletter, so that has been taking up most of my time recently. Now that is finished, back to the creativity portion of our show.


I'm steadily editing and organizing the posthumous poetry collection for a dear friend (about 500 down, 100+ to go), and while I'm not doing that, I'm actively writing the Paranormal Romance Short Story noted above. It's something I've never tried to do before, and I have yet to land on a satisfying title for it, but I believe I'm getting close. I just came into an interesting plot twist that I believe will get me there soon. It's almost done! 


Then I believe I need to jumo on the YA First Kiss Story as that is due relatively soon, then back to the New book set in Mexico (it's always percolating in the back of my head, and it's mostly sketched out so it's a matter of sitting down and just doing it.)
