New project update
It’s been a long year, and I’m so glad to say goodbye to 2015 and move on! I hope you had a great year and read sooooo many books and enjoyed time with your friends like I did.
I’m happy to say that I’ve been working on a new project that I hope I can announce in the next few months, something very different for me, but still very satisfying for YA readers. Don’t know if you’ve noticed, but over the last few years, the YA shelf has become pretty full, lots of genres and tones to choose from. My new project is something I’ve been working on for two years and it’s in a “white space” of YA — or maybe “gray” since by now it’s starting to pick up.
As always, my writing goes right to the heart of my characters’ deepest emotions and motivations — so though this new project will be faster paced, I’m aiming for it to have the depth that you’ve enjoyed in The Clearing and Wherever You Go. It’s not paranormal, so there are no werewolves involved.
One of the themes of this new project is survival, and the things we do and become to survive our greatest challenges. Sometimes, the challenge is as urgent as staying alive, other times it’s more subtle — like how we are fighting for our art or our belief in our selves. In this world, things chip away at us and we have to be stronger than ever to keep moving forward as our true selves.
Anyway, thank you for reading. I’ll post more news soon when I have it. Wishing you a wonderful year ahead.
Love and Light,
