In this one, as yet untitled, the children of the main characters of SLANT OF LIGHT and THIS OLD WORLD are now the main characters -- there's been a generational shift. Although the adult characters of THIS OLD WORLD are still present, the focus has shifted. I'm very excited about this new book and about dealing with a somewhat later era of history.(less)

The book I'm working on now (more on that later) is a further continuation of the story, only with a new generation of main characters and a whole new set of circumstances. I have a "big picture" view of this series and hope that readers will start to see the emergence of patterns and themes as the books follow and interconnect.(less)
