The Newest Angel
Looking for Representation!
I hope this project will be the next one to appear on the list of BOOKS IN PRINT. The text is drafted and has been through a few rounds of readers - so I think it is ready. I am trying to find an agent, because I would like this book to go through the traditional publication process. Since there sometimes are issues with "previously published" interpretations, I am stopping there - but I will say this: I think this story belongs in the same categroy as some Max Lucado books, of which The Children of the King is a good example. Fingers crossed!
The White Trumps Series
As I watched my children grow up, it occurred to me that there is a real need for good literature for young people. This project is aimed in that direction - it follows the adventures of triplets who have lost their parents and must solve the mystery of their deaths while trying to make their way in a dangerous world.
I will put a link here when I have put together a polished description of the project.
The Faery Queen's Apprentice
This project goes in the middle, because it is the one which currently has my imagination. Don't worry, I have not forgotten the Daughters or the White Trumps - but this one has me right now. Imagine a group of rebels fighting for freedom in a setting redolent with the atmosphere of Irish mythology . . .

Short Stories
This is not really a singular project - during the course of working with ideas, some short stories appear. So you can see some of mine here. This is under construction - so the page is not quite ready.

Daughters of the Unicorn
This project was inspired during a road trip my family took a few years ago. We were listening to the soundtrack of the movie Frozen as we drove - the movie is very different from Hans Christian Anderson's The Snow Queen, and what I find interesting is that the movie's signature song, Let It Go expresses several different emotional twists on the Snow Queen. What I want to do is to explore some of those twists - with a short story for each. I have three drafted, though my first reader has told me the second needs a major re-write, and she has not yet read the third.

Cloudspur Fellowship
This project is a narrative version of a set of RPG adventures I had with my siblings when we were kids. This page is under construction - I have a ways to go before I can describe it well.
