Writing Update

I've finished the first draft of Perilous Light and am starting the editing process. With a toddler and infant at home I may be working more slowly than I would like but I should be right on schedule for an early spring release. I've had so much fun writing Perilous Light and am so excited to share it with everyone. I'll post a book description soon.

In other news, once I finish Perilous Light I'll be working on the first book of a new series, The Crescent Chronicles. I'll have more information up soon but it's an urban fantasy/paranormal romance set in New Orleans narrated by a college student (and no, it isn't autobiographical :) ).

Friends and Community Service

     In life there are people who make a significant impression on you and who you can never forget. One of those people for me was Jena, one of my closest college friends and roommates who died tragically last year when she was only 27. Jena was one of those people who lived to give back to others. She believed fiercely in giving her time and energy to community service and outreach. In her honor, her friends and family started an organization, the Jena Ashley Smiles 929 Foundation, to help continue on Jena's strong commitment to community service, particularly in the areas of youth, literacy and medical research.

For the month of October, I will be donating all profits from the sale of Beckoning Light to the foundation.
