I'd like to say that I've been working on Bless the Skies for over a decade. I began at the unfortunate age of fourteen, writing in pencil in a notebook I hid beneath my mattress. I managed to evacuate New Orleans with that notebook in August 2005, but I'd dare not look at it now! The story began as a dream of two girls fighting monsters in a forest.
For the past few months, I've been planning the sequel -- I don't like the stringency of the word "outlining," but the number of ordered lists burrowing into my Workflowy account certainly resembles an outline -- and I have significant ideas for two other dark fantasy novels. Every weekday, I drive twice across the world's longest bridge over water, and those miles offer delightful opportunities for think-think-thinking of stories.
My preferred alcoholic beverages are rum, bourbon, and beer. I have Christmas lights in my home office year-round. Nearly all my clothes are blue.
I hope you'll be reading me soon!
