Every writer is working on something. For me, it’s the next book in my Evening Bower series. This one
will be called The Gypsy Curse and fans of my redheaded vampire Drahomira will be on the lookout for
it. Plus I’m working on a novella of vignettes between my characters. These would be moments/scenes
that didn’t make it into the books or things I thought would be fun if they had happened. I expect to off
this in the Spring of 2019.
I’m also working on a series of workbooks for people who want to write and just don’t know how to get
started. These aren’t going to teach you how to write and publish, but to teach you how to begin to write
every day and tap into the muse. I hear from people all the time who say, “I don’t know how to write. I
don’t know what I know or what I think.” These fun workbooks will be able to be repeated and will help
established writers too. They are excercises for the muse. Like any muscle it improves with strength.
I am thinking long term too. I’ve been coaching and taking editing work and may begin scaling back so I
can concentrate more on personal writing. I want to create a few anthologies too with other authors who
feel as I do about inspiring new writers. That’s far over the bend at the moment, perhaps in 2020.
My only goal as an author is to bring joy to a reader. Make them yell or sigh, love or cry, my one goal is
to make a reader FEEL. If I do this, I have succeeded in life.
I think I would like for readers to tap into my poetry too. I’ve three volumes of poems and all of them
different. If you want to really know what I think about things, read my poetry like in Paper Bones or The
Book of Now.
