Hi Tressa!
Oh Yes! I am working on the fourth book now. It's told from Maya's point of view, and she is amazing. She's definitely not who everyone thinks she is. She's extremely complex and fun to write. I can't wait for you to read her part of the story. If you'd like an excerpt just email me.

I'm waiting to hear from my editor when Harbor for the Nightingale will be published. I should hear back any day now. My newsletter will let readers know how I'm progressing, or check back with me here on Goodreads!(less)

“My job as a writer is simple. Write a book I’m proud of, and present it as a gift to the world.
Some will love it.
Some will hate it.
That’s the nature of art.”
Kathleen Baldwin

“And I learned all those many years ago to stop listening to what people said, and listen instead to what they mean. Some people speak with honey and intend to serve us poison. You, my lord, speak with thorns but yearn for cake.”
Kathleen Baldwin, A School for Unusual Girls

“Even if I were half dead, drugged to the gills, deaf, dumb, and blind, I would know you were here. How can you expect me to rest when you arouse such madness in me?”
Kathleen Baldwin, Exile for Dreamers
