Now for something completely different

This is a sample of what my interactive novel might look like.

I’m doing something completely different, at least taking a chance on it. I know I’ve been doing a lot of talking about my writing, but now is an exciting time for me. I have several things going on at once that are new. One of them is completely something that I hope will catch on, and in today’s society, it just might. SMS novels is publishing interactive novels. You buy a copy of the book, and you get to act out the story with a live author. Just like in an RPG, you make decisions that will guide your own adventure. In my contribution, you would be the character of Vallya, a beautiful sorceress who is banished from her village because she’s a … well… a sorceress. I have no idea how it will all work out, but I’m hoping it does. The book/adventure goes live in about a week, but you can preorder it right now at

Drowning, my YA novel about mental illness and bullying is holding its own in Amazon. When I can work up my courage to do it, I’m going to write a blog about why I wrote it. I haven’t done a lot of writer’s conferences but when I do, I always get asked, “Why did you write this book?” or “How do you come up with ideas?” The how and why of Drowning is a little difficult for me to talk about, but I will one day soon. I think people might want to know.
