Welcome to my home page, where you can get the latest scoop!
Summertiiiiiiime - and the livin’ is easy. Not certain that’s true, but I do love that song. I’m doing a lot of writing this summer. Two books at the same time, which makes me feel a little like Alice, popping in and out of the looking glass. Which Wonderland am I in today?
I did star in a commercial.
It’s about writers, for writers, advertising the Southern California Writers Conference. Our next conference is this September in Irvine (there’s also one in February in San Diego). Let this motivate you to check out the conference–I’ll be there, teaching a workshop or two!
WHAT ELSE IS HAPPENING?
Works-in-Progress My newest manuscript, aka The Girl Pirate Fantasy, aka BLOOD DRAGON RISING (official working title), is making the rounds through agents. It’s a long and excruciating process, and of course I have an Excel spreadsheet to mark off how many agents I’ve queried and how many have responded. More NOs than Please-Tell-Me-Mores, but I’m still pushing through.
What’s BLOOD DRAGON RISING about?
Lisette de Lille dreams of dragons. This is not normal for a young noblewoman. Neither are her dreams for high adventure and true love. Yet some dreams come true, even if they mean being a victim to a political coup, sold to pirates, subjected to a blood curse, guided by goddesses, embroiled in a fight to the death with a lover, or turning into a deadly dragon at night. Blood Dragon Rising is the first installment of The Blood Dragon fantasy series.

August 27 Another Sunday, another month, means another OC Sisters in Crime. This month we have TWO exciting authors to discuss their books. Sarah Skilton is already a renowned YA author and has just released her first adult mystery, CLUB DECEPTION. Kristen Kittscher writes mysteries for children. This is a great afternoon for discussing the highs, lows, joys and difficulties of writing for different ages, and a chance to network with other writers/readers. Join us! For more information, http://www.ocsistersincrime.org.
