General Update during an Uncertain Time

Hey all, I just wanted to let you all know that I'm still here, just hanging back and waiting to see how things go.

For those who didn't know, any current Kroger events have, for now, been canceled. I'll let you know if that changes.

In the meantime, feel free to check out that Audio Drama page to get caught up on the current Tarragon Trilogy chapter. I'll continue to release a new chapter weekly, with potential of more than one chapter being released in a week, pending on how social-distancing and mandatory shelter-in-place orders continue.

In other news, I do have my newest children's picture book coming out at the end of April, the 24th, which will have a virtual launch party and blog tour (May 4-10). If you want to review or host a post for this tour, you can click on the sign up link. I will provide links to both events as soon as they are available.

Here's a look at the cover, to the left.


An epic hunt ensues at Grandma's house to discover who took the cookies from the cookie jar

(Yes, loosely based off the children's game "who stole the cookies from the cookie jar?")

Recommended ages: 2 and up

And still working on different projects, including another children's book about a parakeet, inspired from an actual parakeet in the last Kroger store I did a book signing in. No release date yet as I still have to finish writing it.

Time just keeps slipping by....

Happy Holidays!

I know my last post was mid November, but it sure does feel like it was just yesterday. Man! Time has flown!

A lot has happened in my personal life that has taken precedence over anything else, unfortunately. Lots of craziness that I wish hadn't happened but did. And, hopefully, those things will only make me stronger as we head into the 2020 year.

Man, a new decade. Last time the year had a 20 at the end.... I wasn't alive.... but twenty years ago, I was graduating from high school. Guess that gives you an idea of how old I really am. :D And it's been an interesting journey.

I know I probably won't be posting again until after the New Year, so I want to get this out now before I delve back into the world of prepping and spending time with my family.

Thank you to all my friends, fans, and even haters. Without you guys, I wouldn't be where I am now, stronger, more hopeful, and with more books under my writer's belt.

I'm going to continue with my list of writing goals for this upcoming year....

1 - Publish another children's book, this time a young children's mystery

2 - Start releasing episodes (consistently, fingers crossed) of the radio drama version of the Tarragon Trilogy.

3 - Actually go to a writing convention/conference.

4 - Start making publish appearances again, in Kroger stores, schools, and book fairs

5 - Be more present online for you, the fans, and hopefully get back to posting life content (no promises on that one just yet)

This past year has definitely been a roller coaster of a ride and I"m still trying to recover from it all, but I"m hoping that means this new year will bring a lot of amazing things for me and my family, and, by extension, you, my readers.

So Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and I wish you and yours a Happy New Year!

I know it's now Mid November but....

Hey guys, I know I"m like super behind in keeping things up to date. I can only blame catching a nasty cold on that. It's knocked my socks off, and not in a good way. Still working on fighting it, to be honest, so sorry for not being as communicative as I usually am!

That being said, I'm actually putting together the audio chapters of my Tarragon series and have an official release date of January 15th. I hope to work hard on putting more chapters together over Thanksgiving and the Winter Holiday, but please remember that I'm also moonlighting as a school crossing guard, and it is cold and flu season. Yikes!

If you haven't checked out my other books, feel free to do so. I will try to get them on a discount for the holidays. Remember, all but The Unknown Elf and Kas are now available in hardcover.

Sorry this is short and all that, but I did want to give a head's up on that. Fingers crossed I can get a teaser trailer up for my audio project soon.
