Here it is, my personal website 2.0! My first website didn't do much. I eventually abandoned it. This time, however, I have exciting news, necessitating a new website.
To date, I have published (and then promptly unpublished) a couple of short stories under a pseudonym on Amazon. They weren't what one would call successful (or even very good), but they were important stepping stones on my way to where I am now. I also have several steamy fan fiction one-offs that can be found here.
I've got two full-length novels in the pipeline; one is a contemporary, enemies to lovers romance set in my home state of Alaska. The other is a science-fiction romance with an unexpected heroine. I am very excited about both!
Both of those are works-in-progress, though unlike my big news, which is that I've signed a publishing contract with Violet Gaze Publishing. My short story, Hard to Swallow, will be featured in the first volume of their Enemies to Lovers anthology, due out in February of 2021.
We all know that 2020 has been terrible. It's been hard to focus, hard to be creative. All my time is spent doing more housework, helping with distance learning, and just generally being exhausted. But I'm still reaching for that dream I've had since I was fourteen. Thank you for joining me on this journey as I attempt to become a professional romance writer.
